Announcements / Job vacancy in Risk Management Solutions, Noida
« on: May 04, 2017, 03:56:55 PM »
Dear all,

There is a vacant position (Hydrology-Modeler/Cat-risk Analyst/Senior Analyst) in Risk Management Solutions, Noida in the flood model development team. You may get a sense of the nature of job here -

The requirement is urgent and the vacancy will be filled by mid-June, so if interested, please send your resume to


Thanks a lot! :)

Hi all,

I would highly recommend the students who are working on floods or data intensive research/modeling to try and attend the summer school of NFIE ( in Alabama between June 1 - July 17. The deadline to submit a 5 page proposal is February 15.

There will be ~30 student groups who will be selected and supported to receive intensive data carpentry training, and execute a do-able project in this short time at this summer school held in the National Water Center in Alabama. It is an experimental research project to see if combining all sources of data, models and methods into one giant database and sophisticated information system would be feasible for flood forecasting at country scale and for community response and resilience up to street scale.

Here are my notes ( of the webinars with keywords that will give you a gist of the scope of NFIE. To know in better detail, please watch the webinars.
I will be participating in the summer school (mostly) and also do my Master thesis (in the supervision of Prof. David Tarboton) on something related to data science. I know that Prof. Mujumdar's group is involved with floods, I invite them specially to take a look. Next year there will be a global effort along these lines. If you want to know more, please contact me by email.

Hi people,

I don't have access to the journals in my current place yet, could you please share this paper to my email.

Thanks a lot,

Hi all,

Maybe many of you know this already, this is a nice channel I have been following. Thought I'd share it with you water people.

Distinguished lecture series, Global Institute for Water Security

Interesting. Thanks for sharing these articles. These are particularly interesting to me because I follow a master programme on flood risk management.
Can someone please send them to me by email? I just moved to a new place, so I don't have access to journals yet, and it looks like I wont for a while.

Models / ANN - number of nodes and population size
« on: March 23, 2014, 10:15:43 PM »
I'm a newbie to ANN, so please bear with me.

I fit an ANN model with data generated (for different sample sizes) from sine waves (3pi and 6pi length) to see how sample size and no. of hidden nodes affect the performance of ANN and how dependent it is on the no. of data peaks and troughs. Is there any empirical measure to know the number of data points required and number of hidden nodes to be specified? or is it just trial and error?

Thank you,
PS: See the plot of all combinations of population size (300-3000), hidden nodes (1 to 5) and wave cycles (3pi to 6pi).

I found R studio (IDE) easier to use, and it has a very similar interface to MATLAB for those of you who are conversant with MATLAB.

For installing g77, this link has the steps:

Briefly, the steps are: Add the .deb package archives (as given in the  link) in the sources.list file in /etc/apt/sources.list -> update aptitude -> this will install g77 compiler for you, then undo the changes in sources.list file -> update aptitude again.
