Short summary
The paper demonstrates that the theoretical TCEV (Two Component Extreme Value) distribution can be applied to interpret sediment yield datasets available in Southern Italy. The analysis is based on historical records collected in twelve catchments located in Calabria and Basilicata and followed a hierarchical approach to derive a regional parent distribution from which a return time can be associated with each event. The research was carried out to study soil erosion risk at regional scale.
