One of the commonly used approaches to estimating extremes is the peaks-over-threshold (POT) method. The POT method models exceedances over a threshold that is sufficiently high so that the exceedance has approximately a generalized Pareto distribution (GPD). This method requires the selection of a threshold that might affect the estimates. Here we propose an alternative method, the Log-Histospline (LHSpline), to explore modeling the tail…
