Leeds.frechet: 5-dimensional dataset with unit Frechet margins.

Description Format Details Source References


The dataset contains 590 (transformed) daily maxima of five air pollutants recorded in Leeds (U.K.) during five winter seasons (November-Februrary) between 1994 and 1998. Contains NA's. Marginal transformation to unit Frechet was perfomed by Cooley et al. (2010). Outliers have been removed according to Heffernan and Tawn (2004).


A 590*5 matrix.


The transformation to unit Frechet margins of the raw data has been considered by Cooley et al (2010). Only the 100 data points with the largest radial components were kept.
