Spatio-temporal Analysis of Extreme Hydrological Events offers an extensive view of the experiences and applications of the latest developments and methodologies for analyzing and understanding extreme environmental and hydrological events. This bookaddresses extreme hydrological events using spatio-temporal methods such as space-time geostatistics, machine learning, statistical theory, hydrological modelling, neural network and evolutionary algorithms.

An important resource for both hydrologists and statisticians interested in the framework of spatial and temporal analysis of hydrological events, this book helps to enhance understanding of the relationship between magnitude, dynamics and the probability of extreme hydrological events.

  • Presents spatio-temporal processes including multivariate dynamic modelling
  • Provides variable methodological approaches giving the readers multiple hydrological modelling information to use in their work
  • Includes a variety of case studies making the context of the book relatable to everyday working situations

Dr Gerald A. Corzo Is a Civil engineer by training with a strong background on computational science and specialized in Teleinformatics. His areas of research cover innovative methods for integrating computational intelligent algorithms and hydrological conceptual models for hydrological forecasting (Flood Early Warning System models integration, Delft-FEWS). He developed scripts for areas of computational intelligence, optimization of water resources, online modeling and in fluid dynamics simulation. One of his recent projects focuses on exploring the use of mobile phone antennas in Colombia for measuring precipitation. Dr Corzo has also participated in research projects in different countries like China with the North China University for Water Conservancy and Electric Power in China, Colombia (CINARA), Mexico (Technologico of Monterrey), England (CEH), Norway (University of Oslo) and others. For the last five years he served as chair of the session on geo-statistics at the European Geoscience Union. He lead the LatinAqua network for water research scientist in Latin-America in 2011
Dr. Emmanouil Varouchakis is an Instructor/Researcher at the School of Environmental Engineering, Technical University of Crete, Greece. He holds a PhD in Geo-technology and the Environment-Spatiotemporal Geostatistics from the Technical University of Crete. Since 2013 he teaches the courses ‘’Introduction to Geostatistics’’, ‘’Applied Geostatistics’’ and ‘’Environmental Risk Analysis’’ at the Schools of Environmental and Mineral Resources Engineering. He has published several research articles in international journals and he has presented his research findings in international conferences. In 2015 he has been awarded the Natural Resources Research grant award by the International Association of Mathematical Geosciences for his research work entitled ‘’A Bayesian space-time geostatistical model for groundwater level variability estimation’’.
