  abstract =     "Precipitation time series intrinsically contain
                 important information concerning climate variability
                 and change. Well-fit models of such time series can
                 shed light upon past weather related phenomena and can
                 help to explain future events. The objective of this
                 study is to investigate the application of some
                 conceptually different methods to construct models for
                 large hydrological time series. We perform a thorough
                 statistical analysis of the time series, which covers
                 the identification of the change points in the time
                 series. Then, the subseries delimited by the change
                 points are modelled with classical Box-Jenkins methods
                 to construct ARIMA models and with a computational
                 intelligence technique, gene expression programming,
                 which produces non-linear symbolic models of the
                 series. The combination of statistical techniques with
                 computational intelligence methods, such as gene
                 expression programming, for modelling time series,
                 offers increased accuracy of the models obtained. This
                 affirmation is illustrated with examples.",
