Hydroinformatics for hydrology: extreme value modelling

At the EGU General Assembly 2018 in Vienna, “Hydroinformatics for hydrology” short course (SC) was run for the fourth time. The previous themes of the SC were data-driven and hybrid techniques, data assimilation, and geostatistical modelling. And this year the focus was extreme value modelling. Participants of the SC were given a state-of-the-science overview of different aspects in extreme value analysis along with relevant case studies. Available R functions for extreme value analysis were also introduced. Thanks to Hugo’s excellent lecture, we now know common issues and pitfalls in using extreme value models (i.e. modelling choices and assumptions). We would like to thank Dr. Hugo Winter from EDF Energy for delivering the lecture. You can find his lecture slides (and exercises) here:

Dr. Johannes Cullmann is a hydrologist, currently acting as the Director of the Climate and Water Department (CLW) at the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). His scientific background is flood forecasting, and has vast working experience in hydrology practice in the international context. Johannes Cullmann is also the Head of the CLW’s Hydrology and Water Resources (HWR) Branch where I worked as a consultant last summer. I had the pleasure to interview him briefly in his office at the WMO Secretariat (Geneva, Switzerland) despite his tight schedule and being often on missions.
