Abstract

This study presents Gene-Expression Programming (GEP), an extension of Genetic Programming (GP), as an alternative approach to modeling the stage-discharge relationship for the Pahang River. The results are compared to those obtained by more conventional methods, i.e., the stage rating curve (SRC) and regression techniques. Additionally, the explicit formulations of the developed GEP models are presented. The performance of the GEP model was found to be substantially superior to both GP and the conventional models.
