A generalized framework for single‐variate and multivariate simulation and forecasting problems in stochastic hydrology is proposed. It is appropriate for short‐term or long‐term memory processes and preserves the Hurst coefficient even in multivariate processes with a different Hurst coefficient in each location. Simultaneously, it explicitly preserves the coefficients of skewness of the processes. The proposed framework incorporates short‐memory (autoregressive moving average) and long‐memory… 

Simulation of Stochastic Processes Exhibiting Any‐Range Dependence and Arbitrary Marginal Distributions

This work presents a novel model for synthetic time series generation, termed Symmetric Moving Average (neaRly) To Anything, that holds out the promise of simulating stationary univariate and multivariate processes with any‐range dependence and arbitrary marginal distributions, provided that the former is feasible and the latter have finite variance.

A Multilayer Perceptron Model for Stochastic Synthesis

In this study, a multilayer perceptron network is used to obtain synthetic daily values of rainfall and the results indicate that the suggested methodology is capable of preserving all important statistical characteristics.

Comparison between Deseasonalized Models for Monthly Streamflow Generation in a Hurst–Kolmogorov Process Framework

AbstractThe Hurst–Kolmogorov (HK) behavior in geophysical series is the product of fluctuations occurring simultaneously at several time scales. In streamflow time series, the clustering of similar

The Castalia stochastic generator and its applications to multivariate disaggregation of hydro-meteorological processes

Castalia is a software system that performs multivariate stochastic simulation preserving essential marginal statistics, specifically mean value, standard deviation and skewness, as well as joint

Coupling stochastic models of different timescales

A methodology is proposed for coupling stochastic models of hydrologic processes applying to different timescales so that time series generated by the different models be consistent. Given two

A Cautionary Note on the Reproduction of Dependencies through Linear Stochastic Models with Non-Gaussian White Noise

Since the prime days of stochastic hydrology back in 1960s, autoregressive (AR) and moving average (MA) models (as well as their extensions) have been widely used to simulate hydrometeorological

Stochastic Time Series Methods

This chapter presents an overview of stochastic time series methods in hydrology, which are based on the concepts of probability and statistics and can be broadly grouped into two categories: parametric and nonparametric.



Simple Disaggregation by Accurate Adjusting Procedures

A multivariate disaggregation method is developed for stochastic simulation of hydrologie series. The method is based on three simple ideas that have been proven effective. First, it starts using

Optimal decomposition of covariance matrices for multivariate stochastic models in hydrology

A new method is proposed for decomposing covariance matrices that appear in the parameter estimation phase of all multivariate stochastic models in hydrology. This method applies not only to positive

Simulation procedures for Box‐Jenkins Models

New simulation procedures are presented for generating synthetic data from either a nonseasonal or a seasonal Box-Jenkins model, and a method is developed for incorporating parameter uncertainty into simulation studies.

Condensed disaggregation procedures and conservation corrections for stochastic hydrology

Disaggregation models are perhaps the best available method for generating multiseasonal multsite streamflow sequences for use in water resource system simulations. They are the basis of two general

Mathematical assessment of synthetic hydrology

A Fast Fractional Gaussian Noise Generator

The definition of fast fractional Gaussian noises, as sums of Markov-Gauss and other simple processes, fits the intuitive ideas that climate can be visualized as either unpredictably inhomogeneous or ruled by a hierarchy of variable regimes.

Time series analysis, forecasting and control

This revision of a classic, seminal, and authoritative book explores the building of stochastic models for time series and their use in important areas of application —forecasting, model specification, estimation, and checking, transfer function modeling of dynamic relationships, modeling the effects of intervention events, and process control.

In this Part, the shape of the sample functions and the relations between past and future averages are stressed and this analysis will be illustrated, extended, and made practically usable.

Use of Interrelated Records to Simulate Streamflow

Streamflow simulation is usable in water resources design for the purpose of extracting pertinent information from streamflows at recorder locations and using that information to generate additional

This paper deals with the theory of the broken line process and its applications in the simulation of stochastic sequences.
