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 tail values fron 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. One of the three, a novel appraoch, is
found to improve results considerably.
