Lake Eutrophication Management
As already discussed in previous chapters, due to the worldwide danger of environmental degradation, water quality management has attracted increasing attention in the last decades. A large number of descriptive (simulation, assessment) and management (scenario analysis, optimization) models have been developed and applied to assist decision-making. The interrelated (sub)models frequently have very different temporal and/or spatial scaling and underlying information structure, so that their proper combination poses a significant challenge. Moreover, even recognizing the inherent stochasticity of the management problems studied—and analysing them in detail by descriptive submodels—most optimization models are formulated as deterministic: this transition requires a carefully balanced approach.
