IDF: Estimation and Plotting of IDF Curves

Intensity-duration-frequency (IDF) curves are a widely used analysis-tool in hydrology to assess extreme values of precipitation [e.g. Mailhot et al., 2007, <doi:10.1016/j.jhydrol.2007.09.019>]. The package 'IDF' provides functions to estimate IDF parameters for given precipitation time series on the basis of a duration-dependent generalized extreme value distribution [Koutsoyiannis et al., 1998, <doi:10.1016/S0022-1694(98)00097-3>].
