A new methodology has been developed and evaluated for
making long-term forecasts for the dry and wet period phenomenon. This study
emphasizes the use of actual data as opposed to synthetic data. This is
extremely valuable for the reservoir water manager dealing with the actual data
as opposed to artificial data, which may or may not be materialized.
Utilization of the method significantly improves storage reservoir management
and also acts as a valuable tool in sizing the needed capacity of the existing
or non-exciting reservoir systems.
