How Extremes Change Over Time

From EOS, vol 92, No 2, 11 January 2011:

" Average behavior is often studied, with well developed techniques from the field of statistics allowing for inferences to be readily made. However, in many atmospheric, hydrologic, and other Geophysical problems extremes are often of great interest. .... "
