Abstract
<p>Parametrized eXtreme Rain (PXR) is a dataset that simplifies the representation of extreme precipitation on a global scale. It allows the creation of Itensity-Duration-Frequency (IDF) curves.</p> <p>PXR are created by fitting the extreme value distribution on the annual precipitation maxima obtained by reanalysis.</p> <p>PXR-2 consists of maps of the GEV parameters for 19 event durations (1 to 360 hours).</p> <p>PXR-4 uses the scaling characteristic of the distribution parameters to provide a simpler, four-parameter dataset that could be employed to create IDF curves for a range of durations.</p>
