Abstract

The use of the mathematical models for the simulation, analysis, and control of water resource systems has spread rapidly in recent years. The basic structure and the mathematical formulation of these models have been widely discussed, but relatively little attention has been paid to the operational aspects and logistics of model use.

To stimulate the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and experience about the use of hydrologic and water resource models, this Symposium was convened by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and cosponsored by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the IBM Scientific Center (Pisa). The Symposium concentrated on model identification and use. Logistic issues, such as computer requirements, support staff and data needed, and cost-benefit analysis of the use of models in practical work, were examined in particular detail.

This book contains an introductory chapter on model structure and use, fourteen selected papers from the Symposium, and a summary of the more important points raised during the Symposium discussions.
