Article
Any hydro-meteorology variable includes different components, in general, such as periodicity, trend, possibly jump, and uncertain stochastic parts. Among these, the trend analysis gained importance in the last three decades due to global warming and climate change effects. The literature is full of monotonic trend applications by taking into consi...

Maghreb countries are strongly impacted by floods, causing twice as many deaths as in southern European countries in recent decades. However, due to the lack of data accessibility, there are no studies to analyze whether the frequency or intensity of floods are changing at the regional scale. In this work, a recent database of daily river discharge...

Actually, I'm working on the hydrograph separation methods. But unfortunately, I notice that almost all techniques and tools separate the flood hydrograph into two components ( overland flow and base flow) and ignore the contribution of the interflow.
