Abstrakt

In the paper nonlinear analysis of the Poniczanka Creek dynamics was conducted. Verification of the detected determinism type and the assessment of complexity of the discharge dynamics was carried out together with the evaluation of its effective number of degrees of freedom. Noise level was also estimated. The obtained information is going to be useful for selection of the appropriate predictive model for Poniczanka discharge.
