Treating the occurrence and severity of droughts as random, a hybrid model, combining a linear stochastic model and a nonlinear artificial neural network (ANN) model, is developed for drought forecasting. The hybrid model combines the advantages of both stochastic and ANN models. Using the Standardized Precipitation Index series, the hybrid model as well as the individual stochastic and ANN models were applied to forecast droughts in the Kansabati River basin in India, and their performances were compared. The hybrid model was found to forecast droughts with greater accuracy. © 2007 ASCE.
