Frequency Analysis Rainfall Data (FARD)

FARD(Frequency Analysis Rainfall Data) is an representative program for frequency analysis in South Korea. FARD development project was funded by National Disaster Management Institute (NDMI) and Hydro-Engineering Laboratory in Yonsei University developed FARD program. FARD includes frequency analysis, trend analysis, and change point detecting analysis. FARD has been applied in many practical fields such as water resource management, coastal engineering, and ocean engineering etc.

History of FARD

In 1998, FARD firstly was developed and published. It included five functions such as preliminary tests, parameter estimation, probability density function, cumulative distribution function depiction, and selection of appropriate distribution. In 2002, FARD was revised. FARD 2002 included graphic user interface (GUI) based on windows operation system. New distribution types were added. In 2006, FARD was revised again. Generalized logistic distribution was added and some errors were corrected. In 2012, FARD was developed for international version(in English). It includes trend analysis, change point detecting analysis, new distribution model, new goodness of fit test and confidence limits.
