Spatial Hierarchical Modeling of Precipitation Extremes From a Regional Climate Model

  title={Spatial Hierarchical Modeling of Precipitation Extremes From a Regional Climate Model},
  author={Daniel and Danielle Cooley and R{\"u}diger Stephan and SAIN},
The goal of this work is to characterize the extreme precipitation simulated by a regional climate model (RCM) over its spatial domain. For this purpose, we develop a Bayesian hierarchical model. Since extreme value analyses typically only use data considered to be extreme, the hierarchical approach is particularly useful as it sensibly pools the limited data from neighboring locations. We simultaneously model the data from both a control and future run of the RCM which allows for easy… CONTINUE READING
