Short summary
A approach for non-stationary hydrological frequency analysis is proposed. In this method, an assumption is done that the variation hydrological series in a big time window owns an expected vibration center (EVC), which is a linear combination of the two mean values of the two subsample series. Then using the EVC to reconstruct non-stationary series to meet the requirement of stationary.
