  abstract =     "Implementation of flood forecasting system is crucial
                 for reducing flood disasters urgently and effectively.
                 The authors propose a new method of flood forecasting
                 using genetic programming (GP) and GMDH. Traditional
                 method based on physical model takes time to analyze
                 the hydrologic and hydraulic characteristics of a
                 river, but the new method has potential to make a water
                 level forecasting model from ground-based or
                 radar-derived rainfall automatically by learning the
                 past data of river water level or dam inflow and
                 rainfall, which will be useful in particular for
                 medium-to-small scale rivers. Case studies were
                 conducted for the water-level prediction at the Saba
                 and the Onga Rivers in Japan. The results from both the
                 case studies were encouraging to promote the new
                 method, because the water-level predictions with 6-hour
                 lead time were relatively good. Furthermore,
                 comparative analysis about the incorporation of spatial
                 distribution of rainfall in the upstream brought out
                 the necessity of the combined incorporation of both
                 direct and averaging area for better accuracy.",
