School of Natural Resources Research Seminar Series

Predicting Escherichia coli loads in cascading dams with machine learning

Date: Time: 4:00 pm
Contact: George Limpert,
Presented by Olufemi Abimbola, Remote Sensing and Irrigation Specialist with SNR. Accurate prediction of Escherichia coli contamination in surface waters is challenging due to considerable uncertainty in the physical, chemical and biological variables that control E. coli occurrence and sources in surface waters. This study proposes a novel approach by integrating hydro-climatic variables as well as animal density and grazing pattern in the feature selection modeling phase to increase E. coli prediction accuracy for two cascading dams at the US Meat Animal Research Center (USMARC), Nebraska.
