|Abstract:||This paper evaluates the ability of wavelet transform in improving the accuracy of artificial neural network (ANN) and adaptive neuro-fuzzy interface systems (ANFIS) models. In this study, the performance of hybrid Wavelet-ANN and Wavelet-ANFIS models for estimating daily evapotranspiration in arid regions was evaluated. Prior to the development of models, gamma test was used to identify the best input combinations that could be used under limited data scenario. Performance of the proposed hybrid models was compared to ANN, ANFIS, and conventionally used Hargreaves equation. The results revealed that use of wavelet transform as data preprocessing technique enhanced the efficiency of ANN and ANFIS models. Wavelet-ANN and Wavelet-ANFIS performed reasonably better than other models. Better handling of wavelet-decomposed input variables enabled Wavelet-ANN models to perform slightly better than the Wavelet-ANFIS models. W-ANN2 (RMSE = 0.632 mm/day and R = 0.96) was found to be the best model for estimating daily evapotranspiration in arid regions. The proposed W-ANN2 model used second-level db3 wavelet-decomposed subseries of temperature and previous day evapotranspiration values as inputs. The study concludes that hybrid Wavelet-ANN and Wavelet-ANFIS models can be effectively used for modeling evapotranspiration. 2015, The Natural Computing Applications Forum.|
