This paper presents a fuzzy stochastic dynamic programming (FSDP) approach to derive steady-state multipurpose reservoir operating policies. The vagueness associated with some operating objectives as well as with the decision-making process is apprehended through fuzzy set theory. Operating objectives are considered as fuzzy sets and their membership(More)
Water management models that lack a user interface, data management, reporting and visualization capabilities are less likely to make an impact on real world water systems. Model platforms can improve this situation; they allow researchers and model developers to link model codes to a generic user interface and data management system. We present an(More)
This paper explores the impact of various group decision-making approaches on the performance of a multipurpose reservoir. The reservoir operation problem is solved by a continuous flexible stochastic dynamic program (FSDP) in which the variability and temporal persistence of the inflows are apprehended by a Markov model. Operating objectives are encoded as(More)
Since 2013, hundreds of thousands of refugees have migrated southward to Jordan to escape the Syrian civil war that began in mid-2011. Evaluating impacts of conflict and migration on land use and transboundary water resources in an active war zone remains a challenge. However, spatial and statistical analyses of satellite imagery for the recent period of(More)
This discussion paper is/has been under review for the journal Hydrology and Earth System Sciences (HESS). Please refer to the corresponding final paper in HESS if available. Abstract Many river basins throughout the world are increasingly under pressure as water demands keep rising due to population growth, industrialization, urbanization and rising living(More)
The estimation of spatially-variable actual evapotranspiration (AET) is a critical challenge to regional water resources management. We propose a new remote sensing method, the Triangle Algorithm with Variable Edges (TAVE), to generate daily AET estimates based on satellite-derived land surface temperature and the vegetation index NDVI. The TAVE captures(More)
Many river basins throughout the world are increasingly under pressure as water demands keep rising due to population growth, industrialization, urbanization and rising living standards. In the past, the typical answer to meet those demands focused on the supply side and involved the construction of hydraulic infrastructures to capture more water from(More)
