Influence of spatial variation in precipitation on artificial neural network rainfall-runoff model
Modeling rainfall-runoff processes is a very challenging task due to data collection, time, money, and technology constraints. Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are modeling tools that can quickly adapt and learn input-output relationships for many different engineering problems. An Elman-type recurrent ANN was trained to simulate observed streamflow for Fountain Creek at Pueblo, CO, using varying amounts of spatial precipitation information. Nine zones were originally delineated within the watershed draining to Fountain Creek at Pueblo based on estimated overland flow travel time. Five different ...
