On the tail behavior of the Cumulative Distribution Function-transform (CDF-t)
statistical downscaling method.

To be submitted to Geophysical Research Letters.

Abstract:

The behavior and performance of the Cumulative Distribution Function-transform (CDF-t)
statistical downscaling method is explored using a “Perfect Model” framework. Three
distinct approaches to downscaling values in the tails of distributions are compared.
