Observed data sets containing values above or below the analytical threshold of measuring equipment are referred to as censored. Such data are frequently encountered in water quality investigations and stream flow analyses. In this paper, estimation of the generalized Pareto (GP) distribution by using partial L-moments (PL-moments) is formulated for the analysis of censored flood samples. Monte Carlo simulations are conducted to illustrate the performance of using the method of PL-moments compared to simple L-moments in fitting GP distribution to both GP and non-GP samples. Finally, both simple L-moments and PL-moments are used to fit the GP distribution to two data sets of annual maximum flow series of River Kelantan and River Golok in Kelantan, Malaysia.
