Annual rainfall values in Fortaleza in Brazil from 1849 to 1979 are modeled with extreme values theory. Generalized Extreme Value (GEV) distribution with and without trend are estimated by using maximum likelihood method for these rainfall values. Moreover, return levels, which is inferred from estimation result of GEV, associated with various return periods are analyzed.
