Extremes: spatial parametric modeling

Statistics of spatial extremes is developing very rapidly, owing to the demands of applications in the environmental sciences and the insurance and risk industries. This entry sketches the main ideas, based on classical extreme-value statistics. The two main threads of work are the fitting of max-stable models to spatial extremes, and the use of latent variable models, the latter typically in a Bayesian context.
