Abstract

Hydroinformatics is the field of study of the flow of information and its processing by knowledge as applied to the flow of fluids and their interaction with the aquatic environment. Many new modeling techniques have been entered in Hydroinformatics successfully. Among them, the application Computational Intelligence methods in Hydroinformatics is a relatively new area of research, even if some successful results have been already obtained. In this review we present a general overview of the applications of Computational Intelligence methods to Hydroinformatics and analyze some promising cases study concerning, namely, estimation of sanitary flows, rainfall prediction, unit hydrograph estimation, groundwater monitoring, flood waves propagation, and pump scheduling.
