Extreme environmental events, such as floods, droughts, rainstorms, and high winds, have severe consequences for human society. Regional frequency analysis helps to solve the problem of estimating the frequency of these rare events at one site by using data from several sites. This book is the first complete account of the L-moment approach to regional frequency analysis. Regional Frequency Analysis comprehensively describes the theoretical background to the subject, is rich in practical advice for users, and contains detailed examples that illustrate the approach. This book will be of great value to hydrologists, atmospheric scientists and civil engineers, concerned with environmental extremes.

Extreme environmental events have severe consequences for human society, and are difficult to predict. Regional frequency analysis can resolve this problem. This book is the first complete account of the L-moment approach to regional frequency analysis. It describes the theoretical background to the subject and is rich in practical advice for users.
