Using Artificial Neural Networks to estimate sea level in continental and island coastal environments
MetadataShow full item record
The knowledge of sea level variations is of great importance in geoenvironmental and ocean-engineering applications. Estimations of sea level change with different warning times are of vital importance for the population of low-lying regions and islands. This contribution describes some recent advances in the application of a meshless artificial intelligence technique (neural networks) to the tasks of sea level retrieval and forecast. This technique was employed because it has been proven to approximate the non-linear behaviour in a geophysical system. The data used were taken from several SEAFRAME stations, which provide records for the Australian Baseline Sea Level Monitoring Project. A feed-forward, three-layered, artificial neural network was implemented to retrieve and predict sea level variations with different lead times. This methodology demonstrated reliable results in terms of the correlation coefficient (0.82-0.96), root mean square error (about 10% of tidal range) and scatter index (0.1-0.2), when compared with actual observations.
