Water Supply Special Issue on:

Theoretical Analysis and Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Hydrology and Water Resource Management


In the past decades, a variety of advanced artificial intelligence methods have been successfully developed to help understand or simulate the real-world physical features of the complicated hydrodynamic process in nature, like artificial neural network, support vector machine, deep learning machine, Bayesian network, Markov model, Kalman Filter, chaos theory, and Gaussian process regression. Generally, the artificial intelligence methods can effectively simulate the nonlinear relationship between the input variables and output variables by learning the valuable knowledge from a large amount of data samples.

In recent years, due to the comprehensive influences of human activities and climate variation, the traditional methods may fail to produce satisfying performances for the practical engineering problems (like regression or classification) in the hydrology and water resources fields under the changing environments. Then, more attention has been paid to the emerging artificial intelligence methods in hydrology and water resource management, producing an increasing number of research results around the world. Under this realistic background, the Special Issue (SI) was organized to provide a platform for knowledge sharing and scientific communication about the state-of-the-art theoretical analysis and applications of artificial intelligence in hydrology and water resource management.
