Short summary
This paper addresses the evaluation of extreme floods in western/central Europe in terms of different index variants. The comparison of extreme floods' rankings is presented, as well as the main characteristics of temporal and spatial distributions of flood extremes. The results will be used for the assessment of related meteorological conditions. A comparison of major floods with precipitation and circulation extremes will be useful for a better understanding of the causes of extensive floods.
