Statistical methods for hydrological applications
Editor(s): F. Laio, S. Grimaldi, D. Koutsoyiannis, E. Gargouri-Ellouze, and Z. Bargaoui
This special issue is related to the annual meeting of ICSH-IAHS Commission (International Commission on Statistical Hydrology) that was held in Tunis, Tunisia, 1–2 October 2012. The workshop has the main objective to provide a focused forum for exploring the potential of novel statistical methods and techniques to analyze hydrological and other geophysical processes.
