Hydrological extremes by their very nature are rare events and require careful use of statistical methods to ensure robust and reliable predictions. Talk summary Hydrological extremes by their very nature are rare events and require careful use of statistical methods to ensure robust and reliable predictions. This presentation focuses on two case studies of the application of statistical methods in hydrological engineering. The first example is the use of discrete wavelet transforms to better understand the drivers of multi-year droughts... View Article
