  1. 1. Rainfall-Runoff Modelling Using Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs)

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Aman Mohammad Kalteh; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; teknisk geografi; Self-organizing map; Feed-forward multilayer perceptron; Forecasting; Hydrological modelling; Missing values; Rainfall-runoff modelling; Estimation; Artificial neural networks;

    Abstract : Over the last decades or so, artificial neural networks (ANNs) have become one of the most promising tools for modelling hydrological processes such as rainfall-runoff processes. In most studies, ANNs have been demonstrated to show superior result compared to the traditional modelling approaches. READ MORE

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; teknisk geografi; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; runoff.; infiltration; evaporation; rainfall; deterministic and stochastic explanations; weighting methods; hydrological modelling; spatial modelling; GIS; geographical hydrology; the Sudanese Red Sea region; arid lands; water resources;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Forskning och studier av ytvattensystem i sudanesiska röda havsområdet för utveckling av relevant metodik medför ett antal konceptuella svårigheter. Ett huvudsakligt problem är den begränsade tillgången till litteratur och mätdata för modellutveckling. READ MORE

  3. 3. Water Erosion Modelling using Fractal Rainfall Disaggregation, a Study in Semiarid Tunisia

    University dissertation from Lund University Press

    Author : Sihem Jebari; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Soil erosion; semiarid; Tunisia; rainfall; fractal; diaggregation;

    Abstract : In the Tunisian semiarid area, water erosion processes have led to negative economic and environmental consequences in a context of limited water resources. To characterize and predict these degradation phenomena, a comprehensive high-resolution data base on erosive rainfall, together with siltation records for 28 small reservoirs were analyzed.

  4. 4. Modelling of Substance Flows in Urban Drainage Systems

    University dissertation from Lund University Press

    Author : Stefan Ahlman; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; urban stormwater; source control; modelling; diffuse pollution; BMPs;

    Abstract : Stormwater is recognised as a large contributor of toxic substances to receiving waters. Different measures to manage stormwater quality have been proposed, including structural and non-structural best management practices (BMPs). Computer models have become useful tools for the analysis, evaluation and design of these BMPs. READ MORE

    Abstract : Flooding is of great concern world-wide, causing damage to infrastructure, property and loss of life. Low-income countries, in particular, can be negatively affected by flood events due to their inherent vulnerabilities. Moreover, data to perform studies for flood risk management in low-income regions are often scarce or lacking sufficient quality. READ MORE
