Spatio-temporal Analysis of Extreme Hydrological Events offers an extensive view of the experiences and applications of the latest developments and methodologies for analyzing and understanding extreme environmental and hydrological events. The book addresses the topic using spatio-temporal methods, such as space-time geostatistics, machine learning, statistical theory, hydrological modelling, neural network and evolutionary algorithms. This important resource for both hydrologists and statisticians interested in the framework of spatial and temporal analysis of hydrological events will provide users with an enhanced understanding of the relationship between magnitude, dynamics and the probability of extreme hydrological events.

Key Features

  • Presents spatio-temporal processes, including multivariate dynamic modelling
  • Provides varying methodological approaches, giving the readers multiple hydrological modelling information to use in their work

About the Editors

Gerald Corzo

Dr Gerald A. Corzo Is a Civil engineer by training with a strong background on computational science and specialized in Teleinformatics. His areas of research cover innovative methods for integrating computational intelligent algorithms and hydrological conceptual models for hydrological forecasting (Flood Early Warning System models integration, Delft-FEWS). He developed scripts for areas of computational intelligence, optimization of water resources, online modeling and in fluid dynamics simulation. One of his recent projects focuses on exploring the use of mobile phone antennas in Colombia for measuring precipitation. Dr Corzo has also participated in research projects in different countries like China with the North China University for Water Conservancy and Electric Power in China, Colombia (CINARA), Mexico (Technologico of Monterrey), England (CEH), Norway (University of Oslo) and others. For the last five years he served as chair of the session on geo-statistics at the European Geoscience Union. He lead the LatinAqua network for water research scientist in Latin-America in 2011
