Generally speaking, there are several steps in regional frequency analysis to be undertaken by using the L-moments method, such as [34] (1) identifying the homogeneous subregions and evaluating the discordancy of the stations in all subregions; (2) defining and evaluating the heterogeneity of the subregions; (3) selecting an appropriate (or optimal) statistical probability distribution as the regional frequency model by means of the goodness-of-fit test; and (4) estimating the quantiles and analyzing the spatial variability of variables interested.
