A short introduction to precipitation and precipitation statistics

I am sharing here the videos of my lectures, in Italian, about precipitations. They were performed during my today class of Hydrology, whose main site is here. More material on precipitations can be found in this old post.

Precipitation: a short introduction

Statistical properties of precipitation on the ground

The concept of return period

Intensity-Duration-Frequency curves (and return period again)

Gumbel distribution function

Interpolating Gumbel with the moments method

Interpolating Gumbel with the maximum likelihood method

Interpolating Gumbel with the minimum squares method

Illustrating the Pearson's test

A deeper explanation of Pearson's test (and a little of hypothesis testing)

Alternative videos for some of the topics are available here.
