Simulation-based optimization has been used in multiple contexts to evaluate water resource problems, including well field design, evaluation of groundwater supply and hydraulic capture, and irrigation management strategies. In this work, we discuss the use of simulation-based optimization to guide agricultural management decisions in the face of limited availability of water. As surface water is a primary water source in South Carolina, we consider both surface water routing and water stored…

Development and Use of Mathematical Models and Software Frameworks for Integrated Analysis of Agricultural Systems and Associated Water Use Impacts

The framework for the framework is the construction of a simulation-based optimization software tool using two existing software packages to provide a flexible software environment that will enable the evaluation of one or multiple user-defined (or stakeholder) objectives.

Assessment of Managed Aquifer Recharge Site Suitability Using a GIS and Modeling

We completed a two‐step regional analysis of a coastal groundwater basin to (1) assess regional suitability for managed aquifer recharge (MAR), and (2) quantify the relative impact of MAR activities

Crop Planning and Water Management : A Survey

Agricultural systems pose many challenges and problems that can be formulated as optimization problems. Among these major challenges are crop selection and irrigation planning. That is, to decide on

Simulation and analysis of conjunctive use with MODFLOW's farm process.

The examples show that through MF-FMP's ability to simulate natural and anthropogenic components of the hydrologic cycle, the distribution and dynamics of supply and demand can be analyzed, understood, and managed.

A method for physically based model analysis of conjunctive use in response to potential climate changes

Potential climate change effects on aspects of conjunctive management of water resources can be evaluated by linking climate models with fully integrated groundwater–surface water models. The

Economic resilience through "One-Water" management

Disruption of water availability leads to food scarcity and loss of economic opportunity. Development of effective water-resource policies and management strategies could provide resilience to local
