Development of an effective and reliable tools for modeling the environmental systems of the Gulf of Mexico and the involvement of undergraduate students in funded interdisciplinary research are discussed. Different schemes used for the prediction of water levels include harmonic analysis, multivariate statistical models, and artificial neural networks (ANN). Three different statistical models were used for the 'next-hour' predictions of levels of water, and speed and directions of wind. The ANN model capture captures a large fraction of the water anomaly and improves significantly on tide tables.
