Coupled hydrological-economic modelling for optimised irrigated cultivation in a semi-arid catchment of West Africa

Abstract

Abstract A coupled model system, consisting of a distributed hydrological model and an economic optimization model, is applied 1) to investigate regional interdependencies between irrigated agriculture and regional water balance and 2) to identify optimized cultivation strategies. The coupled model system is applied to a case study for the semi-arid… (More)
