RegioWeissmanSeas: Quantile estimation: Weissman's extrapolation for seasonal...

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/regional_evi.R

Description

Estimation of the p-quantile based on multiple local Hill estimators and Weissman's extrapolation formula with seasonality. We assume heavy-tail homogeneity within each season, i.e., all local EVI's are the same.

Usage

1
RegioWeissmanSeas(x, j = 1, p, ...)

Arguments

x

List of 2 elements: each element is consistent a vector or matrix of observations

j

The number of the target site, i.e., if j=2 the p-quantile of the second station is estimated.

p

The probability of interest; should be between 1-k_j/n_j and 1, where n_j is the sample length of the j-th column.

...

additional arguments, see RegioWeissman

Value

Point estimate of seasonal p-quantile of column j and a short description.
