Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Computer Applications in Water Resources

Abstract: Computation capability has increased by a factor of one million over the past 30 years and has contributed greatly toward data management and the application of available technology to water problems. Although computers have extended technology in some areas, there is a critical need to overcome socio-political constraints that inhibit or prevent satisfactory solution to problems that are growing in extent and complexity.
