A real-time flood forecasting model based on maximum-entropy spectral analysis: II. Application Academic Article uri icon


  • The MESA-based model, developed in the first paper, for real-time flood forecasting was verified on five watersheds from different regions of the world. The sampling time interval and forecast lead time varied from several minutes to one day. The model was found to be superior to a state-space model for all events where it was difficult to obtain prior information about model parameters. The mathematical form of the model was found to be similar to a bivariate autoregressive (AR) model, and under certain conditions, these two models became equivalent. © 1993 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
