Abstract: Bayesian decision theory can be of significant value to reservoir operation because of its flexibility in being able to incorporate new information and/or opinions and judgments of decision makers or operators in the interpretation of probability. The Bayesian model developed in this study will provide a considerably more realistic approach to the input of forecast data in reservoir management. By including a real time posterior probability processors, forecasts can be continuously updated to comply with current conditions.
