Stochastic Hydrology. Stochastic hydrology not only tries to use models for predicting hydrological variables, but also tries to quantify the errors in model outcomes.

Of course, in practice we do not know Stochastic subsurface hydrology book exact values of the errors of our model predictions; if we knew them, we could correct our model outcomes for them and be totally accurate.

The subsurface hydrology of the Bahamian Archipelago is complex. In Chapter 4, Whitaker and Smart describe in detail the complexities of the freshwater lens, its flow dynamics, and its chemistry in Bahamian islands, and their Case Study concerns the Bahamian blue holes.

The discussion presented herein focuses on karst that is observable in the subaerial environment. An extensive literature search revealed that the first ever application of stochastic time series modeling to subsurface hydrologic variable was made by Law (), who estimated deterministic (trend and periodicity) and stochastic components in a monthly groundwater level time series for a total 84 wells in 22 states of the Western United States.

First, deterministic components were removed if found. and Stochastic Hydrology - G. Pegram ©Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS) Stochastic models are used to describe the physical processes that are observed, and about which, data are recorded.
