IDF-package: Introduction

Description Details References Examples

Description

This package provides functions to estimate IDF relations for given precipitation time series on the basis of a duration-dependent generalized extreme value distribution (d-GEV). The central function is gev.d.fit, which uses the method of maximum-likelihood estimation for the d-GEV parameters, whereby it is possible to include generalized linear modeling for each parameter. This function was implemented on the basis of gev.fit. For more detailed information on the methods and the application of the package for estimating IDF curves with spatial covariates, see Ulrich et. al (2020).
