Short summary
The climate is subject to variations which must be considered studying the intensity and frequency of extreme events. We introduce in this paper a new methodology for the study of variable extremes, which consists in detecting the pattern of variability of a time series, and applying these patterns to the analysis of the extreme events. This technique comes with advantages with respect to the previous ones in terms of accuracy, simplicity, and robustness.
