Models are essential in a decision support system for river basin management. In a decision support system for integrated planning and management, the use of appropriate models is important to avoid models being either too simple or too complex. In this paper, appropriate models refer to models that are good-enough-but-not-more-than-that to obtain an(More)
Using physically based computational models coupled with remote sensing technologies, photogrammetry techniques, and GIS applications are important tools for flood hazard mapping and flood disaster prevention. Also, information processing of massive input data with refined accuracy allows us to develop and to improve urban-flood-modeling at a detailed(More)

Considering uncertainty in the decision-making process in river basin management is important because uncertainty is regarded as one of the main obstacles to sound decision-making. In case of high uncertainty, the risks of making a wrong decision could be quite high, which may have severe consequences. This paper applies a screening sensitivity analysis(More)
Particle tracing in curvilinear grids often employs decomposition of hexahedral cells into 5 tetrahedra. This method has shortcomings when applied to-transformed grids, a grid type having strongly sheared cells, commonly used in hydrodynamic simulations. This paper describes an improved decomposition method into 6 tetrahedra. It is shown that this method is(More)
A central component of predictive ecology in wetlands is the analysis of species distribution as a function of their biotic and abiotic environment. This analysis is normally used by decision-makers in biodiversity conservation, species monitoring and environmental planning, among others. Habitat suitability modelling is a major component of the process of(More)
