With the continuing growth of the world’s population the efficient development and management of available water resources are of greater importance than ever before. The assessment of the environmental impact of such schemes is also crucial. A problem of this complexity requires powerful computational tools based on sound theory.

This book introduces a large-scale water resources planning model capable of forecasting the environmental impacts of water schemes. Using this, readers can undertake an environmental impact assessment of various plans and then transform the outcome into a cost modifier that can subsequently be used in an economic model. The author also provides a large-scale application of the model to demonstrate its capabilities.
