Simulation of rainfall time series from different climatic regions using the direct sampling technique

Oriani, Fabio ; Straubhaar, Julien ; Renard, Philippe ; Mariethoz, Grégoire

In: Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, 2014, vol. 18, p. 3015-3031

The direct sampling technique, belonging to the family of multiple-point statistics, is proposed as a nonparametric alternative to the classical autoregressive and Markovchain-based models for daily rainfall time-series simulation. The algorithm makes use of the patterns contained inside the training image (the past rainfall record) to reproduce the complexity of the signal without inferring its...

Simulation of braided river elevation model time series with multiple-point statistics

Pirot, Guillaume ; Straubhaar, Julien ; Renard, Philippe

In: Geomorphology, 2014, vol. 214, p. 148-156

A new method is proposed to generate successive topographies in a braided river system. Indeed, braided river morphologymodels are a key factor influencing river–aquifer interactions and have repercussions in ecosystems, flood risk or water management. It is essentially based on multivariate multiple-point statistics simulations and digital elevation models as training data sets. On the one...

L'expression des attitudes et les opérateurs de cause

Rossari, Corinne

In: Thélème. Revista Complutense de Estudios Franceses., 2003, vol. Extra 1, p. 35-53

Le but de cet article est de saisir le type d’influence que des expressions d’attitude épis-témique peuvent avoir sur l’interprétation ou la construction d’une relation causale. En partant d’une différence d’interprétation possible entre un lien causal concernant un état de choses modalisé par probablement ou par il est probable que, l’auteur examine d’une...

Hydraulic subsurface measurements and hydrodynamic modelling as indicators for groundwater flow systems in the Rotondo granite, Central Alps (Switzerland)

Ofterdinger, U. S ; Renard, Philippe ; Loew, S

In: Hydrological Processes, 2014, vol. 28, no. 2, p. 255-278

Regional groundwater flow in high mountainous terrain is governed by a multitude of factors such as geology, topography, recharge conditions, structural elements such as fracturation and regional fault zones as well as man-made underground structures. By means of a numerical groundwater flow model, we consider the impact of deep underground tunnels and of an idealized major fault zone on the...
