Environmental researchers often encounter the problem of determining the probability of extreme events marked by exceedance of a high threshold of a variable of interest such as rainfall or air pollution. However, the available data may consist of observations that are much smaller than the threshold. This generic problem was addressed by Dr. Saumyadipta Pyne and his collaborators at University of Maryland and NASA in their study, On the Probabilities of Environmental Extremes (in preprint) was published in the International Journal of Statistics in Medical Research (2021).
