Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Computer Applications in Water Resources


Over the past twenty years water resources planning has seen a great increase in the development of computer methods of analysis. This has transformed the way the hydrology, hydraulics, economics and facilities of water resource development are understood and analyzed. Because of this emphasis, the complex reality of planning itself has been neglected. Understanding this reality is essential, not only for the wise future development of water resources, but also for the wise and appropriate use of computer technology in planning.
