18
Germany: Changing probability of extreme events > 95th percentile January < 5th percentile January

19
Germany: Changing probability of extreme events < 5th percentile August > 9 5th percentile August

20
Trend estimates by comparison LS January Gumbel January

21
Conclusions The introduced generalized time series decomposition technique allows a free choice of the underlying PDF The signal is detected in two instead of one parameter of the PDF Statistical modeling of precipitation time series can be achieved The analytical description of the time series 1.allows probability assessments of extreme values for every time step during the observation period 2. provides trend estimates taking into account the statistical characteristics (of precipitation)
