This article presents a detailed review on developments related to hydrological frequency analysis (HFA). All the HFA steps for hypothesis testing, probability distribution tails, and parameter estimation are discussed. These developments on HFA concern nonstationary models in order to consider the effect of covariates on extreme quantile estimation. Such an approach allows one to reduce uncertainty when estimating return period events.
