Applications of machine learning in hydrology

Session ID#: 24633

Session Description:
An infusion of large datasets is transforming hydrologic sciences. Hydrologic data comes from satellites in space, meters in streams, wells in the subsurface, and many other sources. Unsupervised machine learning methods are able to extract signals from these datasets that are meaningful and difficult for humans to discern. Supervised machine learning methods can be trained on big datasets coming out of high-fidelity, computationally-intensive computer models to create fast and accurate reduced order models. This session seeks to bring together hydrologists who are applying machine learning methods to improve our understanding of hydrologic systems and enable modeling techniques outside of traditional numerical models.
