In the decades ahead population increases are expected to place increased stress on water resources. A substantial portion of the world's fresh water is derived from groundwater. Optimal Hydraulic Control of Groundwater Systems will provide a practical guide for implementing mathematical and computer-based
tools to aid in the management of groundwater. Drawn from the operations research literature, this book combines methods for optimization techniques to numerical models for the simulation of groundwater flow. The resulting management model provides a valuable tool for optimizing performance of groundwater systems. This volume will fill a significant gap in the technical literature on groundwater modeling and management.

Review quote

"Optimal Management is well written. Taken as a whole, the book gives a good summary of much of the state of the art of groundwater models that combine simulation and optimization. Through the example problems and references, it makes a valuable contribution to a very important emerging field of groundwater management." --William W.-G. Yeh, Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of California Los Angeles
