A Hybrid Modeling Technique to Predict Runoff

Ratiporn Chanklan, Kedkarn Chaiyakhan, Kittisak Kerdprasop, and Nittaya Kerdprasop
Abstract—The management of water resources is important to prevent water problems: floods and water shortages. The foreknowledge allows time for officials to sufficient preparation to deal with the problem. This study aims to determine the appropriate weight for predicting runoff from the merge of runoff prediction results from two algorithms: Artificial Neural Network and Support Vector Regression with linear regression modeling. In this paper, we compare the runoff predictive performance of the three algorithms: Linear Regression, Artificial Neural Network, and Support Vector Regression. We use remote sensing data, which are the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) obtained from the NOAA STAR. The ground station rainfall, runoff, the number of rainy days and temperature data in Mun basin, Thailand, are obtained from the Meteorological Department. We evaluate the model performance using two statistical values: Correlation Coefficient and Root Mean Squared Error. Experimental results confirm the best performance of our proposed method.

Index Terms—Runoff, artificial neural network, support vector regression.
