Application of Data Mining Technology Based on Wireless Sensor Networks in Oceanographic Forecasting

Wei Zhai


This paper aims to present a desirable prediction method for oceanographic trends. Therefore, an online monitoring scheme was prepared to collect the accurate oceanographic hydrological data based on wireless sensor network (WSN) and computer technology. Then, the data collected by the WSN were processed by support vector regression algorithm. To obtain the most important parameters of the algorithm, the particle swarm optimization was introduced to search for the global optimal solution through the coopetition between the particles. After that, an oceanographic hydrological data collection and observation system was created based on the hydrological situation of New York harbour. Then, the traditional support vector regression and the proposed method were applied to predict the oceanographic trends based on water temperature, salinity and other indices. The results show that the proposed algorithm enhanced the data utilization rate of the WSN, and achieved good prediction accuracy. The research provides important insights into the application of advanced technology in oceanographic forecast.
