The L Moments were calculated for each season and for various probabilities.  The probabilities calculated were 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, 0.80, 0.90, 0.95, 0.98, and 0.99.  In calculating the L Moments for each cluster, there were several distributions available to use:

  • Exponential
  • Gamma
  • Generalized extreme-value
  • Generalized logistic
  • Generalized normal
  • Generalized Pareto
  • Bumbel
  • Kappa
  • Normal
  • Pearson Type III
  • Wakeby

For our analysis, we used the Pearson Type III.  The others were tested and our results were not changed in any significant manner.
