Trivariate Flood Frequency Analysis Using the Gumbel–Hougaard Copula Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Using the Gumbel-Hougaard copula, trivariate distributions of flood peak, volume, and duration were derived, and then conditional return periods were obtained. The derived distributions were tested using flood data from the Amite River Basin in Louisiana. A major advantage of the copula method is that marginal distributions of individual variables can be of any form and the variables can be correlated. © 2007/ASCE.
