Appendix B. Translating the generalized extreme value distribution.
Eq. 14 in the main text is one form of the generalized extreme value (GEV) distribution. Coles (2001) and Katz et al. (2005) use an equivalent form:
Table B1 gives the equivalencies required to translate between Eq. 14 and Eq. B1. Note that the symbol σ in Eq. B1 has no connection to the use of this symbol in this study, it is used here solely to ease translation between published forms of the GEV.
