Analysis of Heavy Rainfall in High Dimensions Naveau, Philippe


One of the main objectives of statistical climatology is to extract relevant information hidden in complex spatial-temporal climatological datasets. In impact studies, heavy rainfall are of primary importance for risk assessment linked to floods and other hydro- logical events. At an hourly time scale, precipitation distributions often strongly differ from Gaussianity. To identify spatial patterns, most well-known statistical techniques are based on the concept of intra and inter clusters variances (like the k-means algorithm or PCA
