Bayesian Approach to Support Design of a Groundwater Long Term Monitoring Plan
This paper discusses a retrospective data assimilation approach that allows one to examine the spatial and temporal differences between forecast and observed states. Their stability, or...

The Accuracy of Extrapolated Design Estimates with Hydrologic and Environmental Models
Extrapolation error in water resources and environmental modeling has not been the subject of adequate study in the past. In research and design, estimates obtained from regression models...
