Flash-flood forecasting by means of neural networks and nearest neighbour approach – a comparative study

Abstract. In this paper, Multi-Layer Perceptron and Radial-Basis Function Neural Networks, along with the Nearest Neighbour approach and linear regression are utilized for flash-flood forecasting in the mountainous Nysa Klodzka river catchment. It turned out that the Radial-Basis Function Neural Network is the best model for 3- and 6-h lead time prediction and the only reliable one for 9-h lead time forecasting for the largest flood used as a test case.
