  abstract =     "This second part of the paper
                 \cite{babovic:1997:eehd1} is given over to describing
                 four representative applications and to some of the
                 most immediate lessons that may be drawn from these.
                 The first of the applications is derived from a
                 hydrologic model but provides equations with purely
                 hydraulic interpretations. The second, taken from
                 sediment transport studies, raises the question of
                 ambiguity in the identification of 'thresholds' in
                 physical processes. It also provides a means for
                 analysing the significance of variables and indicates
                 the need, or otherwise, for introducing further
                 variables. A third example, based upon physical
                 observations of salt water intrusion in estuaries,
                 introduces the application of the present methods to
                 accelerating prediction processes, while the fourth
                 example extends this kind of application to cover
                 numerically-generated data, in this case appertaining
                 to the case of flow resistance in the presence of

                 In conclusion, this work is set within the context of
                 other developments, such as those of data mining and
                 knowledge discovery generally",
