Abstract

An efficient class of nonlinear models, constructed using cardinal B-spline (CBS) basis functions, are proposed for high tide forecasts at the Venice lagoon. Accurate short term predictions of high tides in the lagoon can easily be calculated using the proposed CBS models, which can also produce good long term (up to 24 hrs ahead) forecasts for normal water levels.
