Description

Estimates the parameters of the generalised extreme value or generalised logistic distribution from known return period estimates

Usage

1
OptimPars(x, dist = "GenLog")

Arguments

x

a data.frame with RPs in the first column and associated estimates in the second column

dist

a choice of distribution for the estimates. The choices are "GenLog" or "GEV" the generalised logistic and the generalised extreme value distribution, respectively. The default is "GenLog"

Details

Given a dataframe with return periods (RPs) in the first column and associated estimates in the second column, this function provides an estimate of the distribution parameters. Ideally the first RP should be 2. Extrapolation outside the RPs used for calibration comes with greater uncertainty.

Value

The location, scale and shape parameters for the generalised logistic or Generalised extreme value distribution.
