Extreme Events

Welcome to the SAMA group's Extreme Events page.
This theme is coordinated by Philippe Naveau (P. Naveau email)

Currently there is an increasing research activity in the area of geophysical extremes because they represent a key manifestation of non-linear systems and an enormous impact on economic and social human activities. Our understanding of the mean behavior in geosciences and its "normal" variability has been improving significantly during the last decades. In comparison, extreme events have been hard to study and even harder to predict because they are, by definition, rare and obey different statistical laws than averages. In this context, the motivation of this SAMA group is to educate scientists about the basic principles of Extreme Value Theory and to take advantage of the most recent advances in this field of statistics and applied probability in order to better quantity the uncertainty linked to extremes.
