Features

  • Addresses fuzzy logic as applied to hydrology and water sciences
  • Provides a straightforward hydrological design
  • Presents problem/solution methodology in water science with fuzzy inference systems based on verbal rule bases and numerical databases
  • Allows readers to solve hydrology computations without mathematics by presenting computations based on linguistic deductions
  • Includes solved examples from hydrology, hydrogeology, and water resources operation

Summary

The hydrological sciences typically present grey or fuzzy information, making them quite messy and a choice challenge for fuzzy logic application. Providing readers with the first book to cover fuzzy logic modeling as it relates to water science, the author takes an approach that incorporates verbal expert views and other parameters that allow him to eschew the use of mathematics. The book’s first seven chapters expose the fuzzy logic principles, processes and design for a fruitful inference system with many hydrological examples. The last two chapters present the use of those principles in larger scale hydrological scales within the hydrological cycle.
