ItemModeling Nitrate Concentration in Ground Water Using Regression and Neural Networks(Department of Food and Resources Economics, 2003-01) Ramasamy, Nacha; Krishnan, Palaniappa; Bernard, John C.; Ritter, William F.Nitrate concentration in ground water is a major problem in specific agricultural areas. Using regression and neural networks, this study models nitrate concentration in ground water as a function of iron concentration in ground water, season and distance of the well from a poultry house. Results from both techniques are comparable and show that the distance of the well from a poultry house has a significant effect on nitrate concentration in groundwater.
