A Prediction of Rainfall of Haifa Using MLR and ARIMA Models
Keywords:Terraclimate , Precipitation , ARIMA , MLR , Minitab
This study was conducted to predict the rain fall of Haifa the third largest city of Israel with a population around 285,300 people, which is a part of a sizable metropolis with 962,500 inhabitants and is situated on a bay in the northeastern Mediterranean Basin. The city is a representative of a number of Mediterranean sub-climatic areas due to its distinctive sea-land meteorology and complex hilly topography.
In order to get the best fit based on the best distribution value, this work aims to develop combining strategies for rainfall prediction in Haifa based on ARIMA and MLR models. This will aid farmers in making agricultural decisions, hydrological department water storage decisions, and analysis of groundwater level decisions. It was conducted using of Modeling of monthly precipitation using MLA and ARMA including the best distribution graphic produced by the model and to find the best fit of various distributions displayed by the models which displaces the smallest value of AD. The data obtained and used in this study are monthly rainfall satellite data from Terraclimate using Haifa, the third largest city of Israel from 1958-2020 (62yrs) time interval.
Result shows that long-term continuous data forecasting, the ARIMA model outperforms the MLR models. By its efficiency and precision, ARIMA may be a more appealing option to MLR. As the numerous numbers show, there isn't much of a distinction comparing ARIMA and MLR models. The Logistic distribution plot is the best fit or recommended distribution. From the summary displaced, it can be seen from the numerous distribution plots used to decide which the best match for histogram exhibition is. The best-fit distribution plot has the lowest AD value.
Using precipitation as one of the factors to determine which distribution plot is the best as displaced in the summary table of the AD values of the various plots, it was evaluated that the best fit is the distribution function of the Probability Plot of ppt (mm) of Logistic parameter with the smallest AD value of 59.435 which has the lowest AD value in the Different parameter distribution plots
