Three neural network methods, feed forward back propagation (FFBP), radial basis function (RBF) and generalized regression neural network (GRNN) were employed for rainfall-runoff modelling of Turkish hydrometeorologic data. It was seen that all three different ANN algorithms compared well with conventional multi linear regression (MLR) technique. It was seen that only GRNN technique did not provide negative flow estimations for some observations. The rainfall-runoff correlogram was successfully used in determination of the input layer node number.
