Impact of Reservoirs on Contemporary and Future Hydrology of the Northeastern United States

Construction of dams and the resulting water impoundments are one of the most common engineering procedures implemented on river systems. One major problem in dams’ impact studies is the lack of reliable methods for simulating reservoir operation. We have used Artificial Neural Networks to parameterize actual dam operations and developed a General Reservoir Operation Scheme … More Impact of Reservoirs on Contemporary and Future Hydrology of the Northeastern United States
