1 Stochastic Nonparametric Framework for Basin Wide Streamflow and Salinity Modeling Application to Colorado River basin Study Progress Meeting James R. Prairie August 17, 2006

2 Recent progress Stochastic streamflow conditioned on Paleo Flow –Non homogenous Markov Chain with Kernel Smoothing Estimate lag-1 two state transition probabilities for each year using a Kernel Estimator Generate Flow State Conditionally Generate flow magnitude Colorado River Basin Wide flow simulation –Modify the nonparametric space-time disagg approach to generate monthly flows at all the 29 stations simultaneously –Flow simulation using Paleo recontructions

3 Masters Research Single site Modified K-NN streamflow generator Climate Analysis Nonparametric Natural Salt Model Policy Analysis Impacts of drought Hydrology Water quality Stochastic Nonparametric Technique for Space-Time Disaggregation Basin Wide Natural Salt Model Incorporate Paleoclimate Information Streamflow conditioned on Flow States from Paleo reconstructions

4 Proposed Methods Generate flow conditionally (K-NN resampling) Generate system state Block bootstrap resampling of Paleo flows Nonhomogeneous Markov model Markov Chain on a 30-yr window or Nonhomogeneous Markov model with smoothing or

5 Datasets Paleo reconstruction from Woodhouse et al –Water years Observed natural flow from Reclamation –Water years

6 Addressing previous issues Determined order of the Markov model –used AIC (Gates and Tong, 1976) Indicated order 0 (or 1) - we used order 1 Subjective block length and window for estimating the Markov Chain Transition Probabilities –Nonhomogeneous Markov Chain with Kernel Smoothing alleviates this problem (Rajagopalan et al., 1996)

7 Nonhomogenous Markov model with Kernel smoothing (Rajagopalan et al., 1996) 2 state, lag 1 model chosen –wet (1) if flow above annual median of observed record; dry (0) otherwise. –AIC used for order selection (order 1 chosen) TP for each year are obtained using the Kernel Estimator

8 h window = 2h +1 Discrete kernal function

9 Nonhomogenous Markov model with Kernel smoothing (Rajagopalan et al., 1996) K(x) is a discrete quadratic Kernel (or weight function) –h is the smoothing window obtained objectively using Least Square Cross Validation

10 TPMs without smoothing

11 TPMs with smoothing

12 3 states Window length chosen with LSCV

13 Simulation Algorithm 1.Determine planning horizon We chose 98yrs (same length as observational record) 2.Select 98 year block at random For example Generate flow states for each year of the resampled block using their respective TPMs estimated earlier NHMC 4.Generate flow magnitudes for each year by resampling observed flow using a conditional K-NN method 1.Repeat steps 2 through 4 to obtain as many required simulations

14 Advantages over block resampling No need for a subjective window length –i.e., 30 year window was used to estimate the TP Obviates the need for additional sub-lengths within the planning horizon –i.e., earlier 3 30-yr blocks were resampled Fully Objective in estimating the TPMs for each year

32 Storage Capacity – Firm Yield function What is the maximum yield (Y) given a specific storage capacity (K) and flow sequence (Q t )? Mathematically this can be answered with optimization Maximize Y Subject to: otherwise if positive otherwise if positive

34 Basic Statistics Preserved for observed data Note max and min constrained in observed

35 Conclusions Combines strength of –Reconstructed paleo streamflows: system state –Observed streamflows: flows magnitude Develops a rich variety of streamflow sequences –Generates sequences not in the observed record –More variety: block bootstrap reconstructed streamflows –Most variety: nonhomogeneous Markov chain TPM provide flexibility –Homogenous Markov chains –Nonhomogenous Markov chains –Use TPM to mimic climate signal (e.g., PDO) –Generate drier or wetter than average flows

36 Masters Research Single site Modified K-NN streamflow generator Climate Analysis Nonparametric Natural Salt Model Policy Analysis Impacts of drought Hydrology Water quality Stochastic Nonparametric Technique for Space-Time Disaggregation Basin Wide Natural Salt Model Incorporate Paleoclimate Information Streamflow conditioned on Paleo states Streamflow conditioned with TPM

37 Full basin disaggregation Upper basin –20 gauges (all above Lees Ferry, including Lees Ferry) –Annual total flow at Lees Ferry: modeled with modified K-NN –Disaggregate Lees Ferry: nonparametric disaggregation Results in intervening monthly flows at CRSS nodes Store the years resampled during the temporal disagg Lower basin –9 gauges (all gauges below Lees Ferry) –Select the month values for all sites in a given year based on the years stored above

38 Nonparametric disagg K-NN years applied

39 Advantages Paleo-conditioned flows for entire basin Upper Basin –Generate both annual and monthly flows not previously observed –Produces 92% of annual flows above Imperial Dam –Faithfully reproduces PDF and CDF for both intervening and total flows Lower Basin –Produces 8% of annual flows above Imperial Dam –Preserves intermittent properties of tributaries –Faithfully reproduces all statistics –Easily incorporate reconstructions at Lees Ferry

40 Disadvantages Upper Basin –Generates negative flows at rim gauges (7 out of 10 gauges) Average of 1.5% negatives over all simulations (500 sims) Is this important? Two largest contributors only produce 2.2% –Can not capture cross over correlation (i.e. between last month of previous year and first month of the current year) Improved in recent run (added a weighted resampling) –Can not generate large extremes beyond the observed Annual flow model choice Using Paleo flow magnitudes Lower Basin –Can only generate observed flows

59 Comments Handling negatives in total natural flow –Continuing to explore reducing negatives in simulations –Should we address base data (natural flow)? –How does RiverWare handle negatives at rims? Min 10 constraint K-NN implementation in Lower basin –Robust, simple –Handles intermittent streams –Faithfully reproduces statistics

60 Next steps Incorporate salinity methods in EIS CRSS Generate stochastic data no conditioning –Flow and salt scenarios –Disaggregate data Generate paleo conditioned data for network –Flow and salt scenarios –Disaggregate data Drive decision support system –Perform policy analysis Compare results from at least two hydrologies –Paleo conditioned streamflows –Index Sequential Method (current Reclamation technique) –Possibly stochastic no conditioning
