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


  • This paper, the first of two, develops a real-time flood forecasting model using Burg's maximum-entropy spectral analysis (MESA). Fundamental to MESA is the extension of autocovariance and cross-covariance matrices describing the correlations within and between rainfall and runoff series. These matrices are used to derive the model forecasting equations (with and without feedback). The model may be potentially applicable to any pair of correlated hydrologic processes. © 1993 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
