Abstract:This study investigates the selection of an appropriate low flow forecast model for the Meuse
River based on the comparison of output uncertainties of different models. For this purpose, three data
driven models have been developed for the Meuse River: a multivariate ARMAX model, a linear regression
model and an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model. The uncertainty in these three models is assumed to
be represented by the difference between observed and simulated discharge. The results show that the ANN
low flow forecast model with one or two input variables(s) performed slightly better than the other statistical
models when forecasting low flows for a lead time of seven days. The approach for the selection of an
appropriate low flow forecast model adopted in this study can be used for other lead times and river basins
as well.
