ÐThe present work describes the development and validation of an arti®cial neural network (ANN) for the purpose of estimating inorganic and total nitrogen concentrations. The ANN approach has been developed and tested using 927 nonpoint source watersheds studied for relationships between macro-drainage area characteristics and nutrient levels in streams. The ANN had eight independent input variables of watershed parameters (®ve on land use features, mean annual precipitation, animal unit… CONTINUE READING
