  • A comprehensive reference book of methodologies and approaches in extreme value analysis
  • Relevant to many graduate courses in Civil & Environmental Engineering, Earth System Science, Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences
  • Extreme events are being researched rigorously
  • Addresses challenges in climate change research

This book provides a collection of the state-of-the-art methodologies and approaches suggested for detecting extremes, trend analysis, accounting for nonstationarities, and uncertainties associated with extreme value analysis in a changing climate. This volume is designed so that it can be used as the primary reference on the available methodologies for analysis of climate extremes. Furthermore, the book addresses current hydrometeorologic global data sets and their applications for global scale analysis of extremes. While the main objective is to deliver recent theoretical concepts, several case studies on extreme climate conditions are provided. 

Audience
The book is suitable for teaching in graduate courses in the disciplines of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Earth System Science, Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences.
