Abstract
The aim of the study is to analyse the meteorological temporal scales and classify the synoptic maps associated with the 21 extreme rainfall events recorded in the Ebro Observatory showing a return period equal or longer than 10 years for durations from 5 minutes to 24 hours. To investigate the prevailing meteorological temporal scale, the 21 events have been classified using a cluster analysis and four groups are obtained. Three clusters correspond to the main meteorological scales: local, meso...
