Risque hydrologique: approches basiques et avancées.
Statistics play a key role in solving hydrological problems and providing tools to guide decision making in the field of water resources including floods and droughts. This talk focuses on hydrological risk evaluation which is based on hydrological frequency analysis. It covers estimation at sites where hydrological data are available (univariate and multivariate cases), as well estimation at ungauged sites where hydrological data are not available (regional analysis, also univariate and multivariate). Approaches are based for instance on copulas, functional data analysis, depth functions, extreme value theory, and spatial statistics.
