Abstract

There is an unresolved debate about the comparative merits of parametric and non-parametric approaches to single-site flood frequency analysis. The Spring and Autumn data are better fitted by an EV2 distribution, while each of Summer and Winter series are better fitted by different EV1 distributions. Although distinct categories of weather patterns are identified, the annual maximum flood events associated with them are not clearly different, and do not conform well to EV1 or EV2.
