Publication# Bed Topography Inference from Velocity Field Using Deep Learning.

Abstract

Measuring bathymetry has always been a major scientific and technological challenge. In this work, we used a deep learning technique for inferring bathymetry from the depth-averaged velocity field. The training of the neural network is based on 5742 laboratory data using a gravel-bed flume and reconstructed velocity fields, namely the topographies were obtained from real-world experiments, and the velocity fields were estimated using a statistical model. To examine the predictive power of the proposed neural network model for bathymetry inference, we applied the model to flume experiments, numerical simulations, and field data. The results showed the model properly estimates topography, leading to a model for riverine bathymetry estimation with a 31.3% maximum relative error for the case study (confluence of the Kaskaskia River with the Copper Slough in east-central Illinois state, USA).

Recurrent neural network

A recurrent neural network (RNN) is one of the two broad types of artificial neural network, characterized by direction of the flow of information between its layers. In contrast to uni-directional feedforward neural network, it is a bi-directional artificial neural network, meaning that it allows the output from some nodes to affect subsequent input to the same nodes. Their ability to use internal state (memory) to process arbitrary sequences of inputs makes them applicable to tasks such as unsegmented, connected handwriting recognition or speech recognition.

Deep learning

Deep learning is part of a broader family of machine learning methods, which is based on artificial neural networks with representation learning. The adjective "deep" in deep learning refers to the use of multiple layers in the network. Methods used can be either supervised, semi-supervised or unsupervised.

Artificial neural network

Artificial neural networks (ANNs, also shortened to neural networks (NNs) or neural nets) are a branch of machine learning models that are built using principles of neuronal organization discovered by connectionism in the biological neural networks constituting animal brains. An ANN is based on a collection of connected units or nodes called artificial neurons, which loosely model the neurons in a biological brain. Each connection, like the synapses in a biological brain, can transmit a signal to other neurons.

In inverse problems, the task is to reconstruct an unknown signal from its possibly noise-corrupted measurements. Penalized-likelihood-based estimation and Bayesian estimation are two powerful statistical paradigms for the resolution of such problems. They ...
