Abstract

Integral water management strenghtens the need to integrate modelling tools in a generic framework. This paper describes such a framework for integrated hydraulic modelling, called SIMON A. 1 Introduction Roughly half of the Netherlands is below sea level. Therefore water man- agement has always been and still is of great importance for the Dutch gov- ernment. Protection against flooding, (ground)water regulation and land reclamation for example have a long history in the Netherlands.
