Optimizing environmental flow rules - a conceptual model

Barbour, Emily; Driver, Patrick D.; Kuczera, George Alfred; Blakers, Rachel; Croke, Barry


Multi-objective optimization (MOO) is an effective and efficient method which can identify the trade-offs between different river system management options. However, a number of barriers remain between using optimization in research, and implementing it in practice. To address such limitations, this study developed a simplified conceptual model consisting of hydrologic, ecological and optimization components to explore the trade-offs between ecological and human water needs. A hypothetical...[Show more]
