Estimate stage-discharge relation for rivers using artificial neural networks- Case study: Dost Bayglu hydrometry station over Qara Su River

The prediction of discharge and its variability in a river is an essential component of surface-water planning. For that purpose, a functional relationship between stage and discharge is established with the help of field measurement and the relationship is expressed as a rating curve. Whereas direct discharge measurement in rivers is time consuming and expensive, and sometimes it is impossible, for this purpose the...

Assessment of climate change effects on future drought levels by combining a hydrological model and Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) index in the Nakdong river basin, Korea

The main purpose of this study is to analyze the effects of climate change on drought levels in the future by using both hydrological model (SWAT) and Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) tools. Three benchmark periods of climate change were used for simulation such as 2010-2039, 2040-2069 and 2070-2099. These results were then compared with the baseline period (1980-2009) at nine zones in the basin. Results indicated...
