Short summary
A statistical significance of changes in correlations of daily precipitation in six RCM simulations is assessed. The effect of outliers is explored and a concept of dependence outliers is presented. We show that correlation estimates can be strongly affected by a few outliers; therefore any statistical correction relying on sample correlation can provide misleading results. An exploratory procedure is proposed to detect and evaluate the dependence outliers in multivariate data.
