In this chapter: A brief example to demonstrate the value of modeling. General thoughts on the major challenges facing water resources system planners and managers, the information they need to meet these challenges , and the role analyst have in helping to provide this information. Information on the practice of modeling is in a state of transition, and how current research and development in modeling and computing technology are affecting the transition.
