In this paper, SWAT was coupled with an ANN model to predict daily streamflow in the basin. Using daily streamflow data and meteorological data, the SWAT model was conducted. Subtraction values between the SWAT model’s results and observed data are used to the input data of the ANN model. Then, the outputs were added to the SWAT model’s results.
As a result, it is proved that the prediction accuracy of the hybrid SWAT-ANN model is better than a single SWAT model. Therefore, this approach would be useful to predict other water fields such as future chlorophyll-a concentration, water level fluctuation, and precipitation. Also, other hydrological models and artificial intelligence model would be adapted to this method.
3. Application to research
Like this paper, we can also use a hybrid hydrological and artificial intelligence model to predict water fields. This approach could solve the disadvantages of each model.
