Do El Niño events modulate the statistical characteristics of Turkish streamflow?
The objective of this study is to investigate whether or not the basic statistical characteristics of a streamflow time series that is assumed to be affected by the warm phases of the Southern Oscillation (El Niño events). In order to achieve this intended goal, we considered a hypothetical series, so-called generated series, which can be obtained from the historical series at hand by first assuming non-occurrence of El Niño events in the past. The historical monthly precipitation data during the El Niño years were simulated by the Radial Based Artificial Neural Network (RBANN) method. The ...
