Predicting Model of River Streamflow Based on Chaotic Phase Space Reconstruction
The application of chaos theory and genetic programming has been gained a special attention in hydrology by abilities of these two models. In this study, a daily streamflow series with 30 years
Estimation of Daily Discharge of Baranduz River via Chaos Theory
The chaotic behavior of monthly precipitation time series is investigated using the phase- space reconstruction technique and the principal component analysis method. To reconstruct phase space, the
Local Prediction in River Discharge Time Series
In this paper, chaotic behavior of the daily river discharge time series from the Karoon River, during January 1999-December 2004 is investigated. The phase space, which describes the evolution of
Nonlinear forecasting of stream flows using a chaotic approach and artificial neural networks
This paper evaluates the forecasting performance of two nonlinear models, k-nearest neighbor (kNN) and feed-forward neural networks (FFNN), using stream flow data of the Kizilirmak River, the longest
Is the streamflow process chaotic?
In this paper, the existence of low-dimensional chaos is investigated for the streamflow series of the upper Yellow River and the lower Rhine River with the correlation dimension method. No finite
A novel hybrid neural network based on phase space reconstruction technique for daily river flow prediction
The inter-comparisons showed that the proposed PSR–ANN method provides the best prediction of daily river flow, and the ANN model showed higher ability than the pure GEP in estimation of the river flow.


Singapore Rainfall Behavior: Chaotic?
The possibility of making short-term prediction of rainfall is studied by investigating the existence of chaotic behavior in the rainfall data series. The minimum number of variables essential and
Nonlinear analysis of river flow time sequences
Within the field of chaos theory several methods for the analysis of complex dynamical systems have recently been proposed. In light of these ideas we study the dynamics which control the behavior
ABSTRACT: This paper focuses on the investigation of the existence of chaotic behavior in the Singapore rainfall data. The procedure for the determination of the minimum number of variables essential
Strange Attractors and Chaos in Wastewater Flow
This study investigates the complexity of wastewater flow phenomena using state‐of‐the‐art chaos analysis. Techniques used are power spectrum, correlation exponent, and Lyapunov exponent analyses.
Nonlinear Dynamics of the Great Salt Lake: Nonparametric Short‐Term Forecasting
Variations in the volume of closed basin lakes, such as the Great Salt Lake, are often driven by large-scale, persistent climatic fluctuations. There is growing evidence of structure in the
Chaos in rainfall
The question is posed regarding possible chaotic dynamics in the temporal rainfall of storm events. Chaotic dynamics implies a nonlinear deterministic system very sensitive to initial conditions
Nonlinear Dynamics of the Great Salt Lake: Dimension Estimation
We study the possibility that variations in the volume of the Great Salt Lake (GSL), a large, closed basin lake, may be described as a low-dimensional nonlinear dynamical system. There is growing
