Return values


Return values

"Extreme value theory" complements the "Indices of extremes" in order to evaluate the intensity and frequency of more rare events. Calculated are the return values for events that occur once in 2, 5, 10 and 20 years.

To learn more about extreme value analysis, see Project info > WMO-guide.

The menu below allows you to view maps of return values over Europe for several extremes of temperature, precipitation, etc. Every item of the menu offers the option to download the results.
