Massive feature extraction for explaining and foretelling hydroclimatic time series forecastability at the global scale

  title={Massive feature extraction for explaining and foretelling hydroclimatic time series forecastability at the global scale},
  author={Georgia Papacharalampous and Hristos Tyralis and Ilias G. Pechlivanidis and Salvatore Grimaldi and Elena Volpi},
Statistical analyses and descriptive characterizations are sometimes assumed to be offering information on time series forecastability. Despite the scientific interest suggested by such assumptions, the relationships between descriptive time series features (e.g., temporal dependence, entropy, seasonality, trend and nonlinearity features) and actual time series forecastability (quantified by issuing and assessing forecasts for the past) are scarcely studied and quantified in the literature.

Benchmarking ensemble streamflow prediction skill in the UK
Overall, this work provides scientific justification for when and where use of such a relatively simple forecasting approach is appropriate in the UK and creates a low cost benchmark against which potential skill improvements from more sophisticated hydro-meteorological ensemble prediction systems can be judged.
