Stepwise nonparametric disaggregation for daily streamflow generation conditional on hydrologic and large-scale climatic signals
MetadataShow full item record
A stepwise nonparametric stochastic disaggregation framework to produce synthetic scenarios of daily streamflow conditional on volumes of spring runoff and large-scale ocean-atmosphere oscillations is presented. This thesis examines statistical links (i.e., teleconnections) between decadal/interannual climatic variations in the Pacific Ocean and hydrologic variability in US northwest region, and includes a spectral analysis of climate signals to detect coherences of their behavior in the frequency domain. We explore the use of such teleconnections of selected signals (e.g., north Pacific gyre ...
