Today, studying climatic variations with respect to different climate variables such as precipitation, evaporation, temperature, and air pressure in various parts of the world is important. This topic has received more attention especially in areas with intense wet and dry periods for water resources and crisis management. In Southeast of Iran, especially in Sistan & Baluchestan Province, very intense climatic variations have been observed in recent years. Various methods for clustering climate signals have been developed, which are suitable for modeling of climate variations in such areas. In this paper, a new method for clustering satellite information of Sea Surface Temperature (SST) using Genetic Algorithm Clustering is presented. Different parts of this research are based on selection of best model framework, objective function, length of chromosomes and mutation and crossover operators. This model tries to find the relation between SST data and above and below normal precipitation. 20 rain gauges in Sistan & Baluchestan Province have been considered in the case study. Using the Genetic Algorithm for mapping, the relation between precipitation in various seasons and temporal-spatial clustering are innovative aspects of this paper. The results show the potential of using the clustering method for forecasting the seasonal behavior of precipitation in Southeast of Iran.
Keywords: Clustering, Climate Signals, Genetic Algorithm, Sea Surface Temperature (SST).
