mapRandomForest---Monthly flow estimation in the Mississippi Alluvial Plain by means of Random Forest Modeling

June 9, 2021

The code included in this package, when combined with data retrieved from an associated ScienceBase archive, is designed to allow for reasonable monthly total and baseflow volumes to be estimated at arbitrary locations within the Mississippi Embayment as part of the Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP) Project. The resulting surface water volume estimates were used as inputs to associated groundwater flow models developed as part of the MAP Project. The original random forest model was constructed by Brian K. Breaker, who is now (as of June, 2021) with the Corps of Engineers. The code provided here is based on his earlier code.
