Orange/Brown Line: Artificial Neural Network Based Model

Note Regarding Water Level Predictive Models for Galveston Bay and Sabine/Port Arthur:
Artificial Neural Network (ANN) predictions are presently not available for the areas of Galveston Bay and Sabine/Port Arthur. The models depended on input from the Galveston Pleasure Pier station (http://lighthouse.tamucc.edu/overview/021) which was recently removed and replaced by the new Sentinel station installed along the North Jetty at the entrance of the Houston/Galveston ship channel (http://lighthouse.tamucc.edu/overview/529). The ANN models will be inactive for a little while longer to accumulate sufficient data from the new station to verify and calibrate new models. Harmonic (tidal) and persistent predictions are still available for all these stations. Persistent model predictions are quite accurate up to 6 to 12 hours but do include predicted wind speeds and other broader information, i.e. they are not as accurate as ANN for longer prediction times. If you have further questions please email ptissot@lighthouse.tamucc.edu

Once sufficient data is available a model will be calibrated for this new station.
