  author={Rajasekhara G. Rao and Rajesh Kashyap},
A family of linear stochastic difference equation models is proposed for monthly river flows, the variance of the disturbance in the model varying sinusoidally with time. The unknown parameters in the model are estimated by using the given data and an algorithm is given for the choice of the appropriate number and type of autoregressive terms, sinusoidal trend terms, etc., in the model. The method is used to construct a model for the flows in Wabash and other rivers. This model is useful not… CONTINUE READING
