Policy Analysis of Water Management for the Netherlands: Vol. II, Screening of Technical and Managerial Tactics
Dec 31, 1980
This volume describes the methods developed and used to estimate the cost of sprinkling and the amount of water used. Chapter 2 describes the sprinkler system design models for the Buis and the Haspel systems. The Buis and Haspel system cost models are described in Chap. 3. Chapter 4 describes the daily sprinkler operations simulation model used to investigate the effect of many different operating policies on the efficiency of water use, sprinkling costs, and crop damage. The decade sprinkling algorithm described in Chap. 5 estimates the demand for sprinkling water in response to decade rain and evapotranspiration given a sprinkling policy. The remaining three chapters describe how systems and policies for use in PAWN analysis were selected.
