Today we will discuss extreme climate events in the context of climate change and introduce you to statistical methods to study their variability. Around the world, people experience increased intensities and frequencies of extreme weather due to climate change, leading to significant costs to societies. To develop efficient adaptation strategies we need to understand how exactly extreme events change, yet systematic observed data of extremes is sparse. Extreme Value Theory (EVT) addresses some of these challenges and can be used to estimate extreme event probabilities. In these tutorials we show you how you can use EVT to estimate return periods of storms, droughts, floods and more.
