HydroForecast

Short-term, Seasonal and Extended

Three forecast horizons designed for organizations' decision-making:

  1. Short-term, designed for operations, marketing and emergency response, gives high-accuracy, hourly insight of the upcoming 10 days.
  2. Seasonal, designed for medium-term planning and coordination, provides insight for the upcoming 90 days.
  3. Extended, designed for long-term planning and risk mitigation, provides guidance up to 12 months into the future.

Proven Performance

HydroForecast swept a year long short-term flow forecasting competition hosted by the United States Bureau of Reclamation, CEATI and hydropower utilities and verified by RTI International.

In every competition region, HydroForecast was more accurate further into the future and provided better insight in both drought conditions and 1000-year storms.

How it works

HydroForecast learns to represent hydrologic processes by identifying relationships between satellite observations, basin characteristics, meteorological forecasts, and streamflow measurements.

Our approach is distinct from purely data-driven machine learning models in that we use physical science to guide and constrain the relationships between inputs and streamflow predictions. We believe that the best model is one grounded in scientific principles and enhanced by finding deep connections in the relationships between data.

HydroForecast’s Core Model has been trained on a wide range of hydrologic conditions and landscapes, and can be tuned for specific locations anywhere on Earth.
