Predictability of river flow and suspended sediment transport in the Mississippi River basin : a non-linear deterministic approach

Auteurs :

WALLENDER, W.W.

Description :
The approach, based on non-linear determinism, involves : reconstruction of single-dimensional series in multi-dimensional phase-space for representing the underlying dynamics; and use of the local approximation technique for prediction. For implementation, river flow and suspended sediment transport variables observed at the St. Luois (Missouri) station are studied. Specifically, daily water discharge, suspended sediment concentration and suspended sediment load data are analysed for their predictability and range, by making predictions from one day to ten days ahead.
