Generalized least squares (GLS) regional regression procedures have been developed for estimating river flow quantiles. A widely used GLS procedure employs a simplified model error structure and average covariances when constructing an approximate residual error covariance matrix. This paper compares that GLS estimator (b̂GLS MC ), an idealized GLS estimator (b̂GLS E ) based on the simplifying assumptions of b̂GLS MC with true underlying statistics in a region, the best possible GLS estimator… CONTINUE READING
