Application of ARIMA Model for River Discharges Analysis
Keywords:Time Series Analysis, ARIMA Model, Hydrological Process, Autocorrelation, Seasonal Variation
Time series data often arise when monitoring hydrological processes. Most of the hydrological data are time related and directly or indirectly their analysis related with time component. Time series analysis accounts for the fact that data points taken over time may have an internal structure (such as autocorrelation, trend or seasonal variation) that should be accounted for. Many methods and approaches for formulating time series forecasting models are available in literature. This study will give a brief overview of auto-regressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) process and its application to forecast the river discharges for a river. The developed ARIMA model is tested successfully for two hydrological stations for a river in US.
