Katz, N.A. (author)
This volume in the PAWN series describes a series of analyses that allow its users to specify several plausible scenarios of agricultural irrigation systems location. These scenarios were used by agricultural models in screening and impact assessment. The scenarios are created by the preprocessor for the distribution model program, also...

Goeller, B.F. (author)
Summarizes the PAWN project, documented in RAND Notes N-1500/2 to N-1500/20, which designed alternative water management policies for the Netherlands and assessed their consequences. Considers both short- and long-term policies, including building new facilities and changing facility operating rules to improve supply as well as using prices and...

Salt intrusion into the Rotterdamsche Waterweg plays a major role in the water management of the Netherlands. The objective of the modeling described in this volume is to estimate the salt concentration caused by salt intrusion from the sea of water at various points. Chapter 2 gives an overview of the modeling. The sources of the data used are...

Bigelow, J.H. (author)
This volume investigates what day-to-day actions will bring about the distribution of surface water most beneficial to all water users and uses. It describes the Managerial Strategy Design Model (MSDM), and the results that have been obtained with it. Given a fixed set of facilities, MSDM determines a managerial strategy that yields the lowest...

Bigelow, J.H. (author)
This volume contains seven technical appendixes to Vol. V, [Design of Managerial Strategies]. This volume is properly regarded as part of Vol. V, rather than as a volume in its own right. Some of the appendixes in this volume also serve as appendixes for Vol. XI, [Water Distribution Model]. Topics discussed include details of the MSDM network,...

Baan, P.J.A. (author), Stucker, J.P. (author)
The present volume describes the major model used in estimating the impacts of water-management tactics on industrial firms. It contains detailed documentation of the Industry Response Simulation Model (IRSM), explaining the structure, inputs, and attributes of that model. Chapter 2 presents the general structure of the model and discusses its...

This report describes a verification simulation of a model of the Eastern Scheldt. Boundary conditions for a simulation of flows and water levels on 11 January 1982 are obtained from gauging stations in the offshore area of the estuary by use of weighting functions obtained from simulations with other models of conditions of September 1975 in...

Jaquette, D.L. (author), Pulles, J.W. (author)
This volume describes the Electric Power Reallocation and Cost model (EPRAC). This model uses linear programming techniques to estimate the cost to power companies of complying with environmental standards that limit thermal pollution. EPRAC was used to postprocess some of the output of the Water Distribution Model (DM) in Vol. IX of this series...

Petruschell, R.L. (author), Repnau, T. (author), Baarse, G. (author)
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...

Abraham, S.C. (author)
This volume is concerned with designing long-run pricing and regulation strategies that efficiently allocate the increasingly scarce groundwater (GW) in the Netherlands. Chapter 2 describes the methodology used, particularly the linear program RESDM that became an integral part of the strategy-design process. It begins with a nontechnical...

Los, F.J. (author), De Rooij, N.M. (author), Smits, J.G.C. (author), Bigelow, J.H. (author)
This volume discusses the methodology and results of the special PAWN study of eutrophication control. It should be read in conjunction with Vol. III, Screening of Eutrophication Control Tactics. Volume VI estimates the effectiveness of many of the tactics discussed in Vol. III for controlling phytoplankton blooms in the particular circumstances...

Stuckler, J.P. (author), Baan, P.J.A. (author), Dorsman, W.A. (author)
This volume in the PAWN series documents the impacts on industrial firms in the Netherlands that would be brought about by the imposition of a set of proposed water-management policies. It describes the structure, data requirements, and major assumptions behind the computer models used to calculate the efficient distribution of ground water (GW)...

Abraham, S.C. (author)
This volume assesses the impacts of a number of water management policies developed by PAWN on drinking-water (DW) companies and their customers (households, commercial entities, and industrial firms). Chapter 2 summarizes briefly the major water-related problems facing DW companies in the Netherlands today, and shows why the author believes...

Walker, W.E. (author), Veen, M.A. (author)
This volume describes one of the first steps in the evaluation of alternative policy options for water management — the screening of technical and managerial tactics. In this step, a large number of possibilities for changing the movement and storage of water throughout the Netherlands (tactics) were evaluated in terms of a small number of...

Wegner, L.H. (author)
This volume describes the Water Distribution Model (DM), the central model in PAWN's analysis methodology. The DM is a computer simulation of the water distribution system in the Netherlands. It determines water demands over time, allocates water resources to help meet the demands, calculates the concentrations of several water pollutants...

Stucker, J.P. (author)
This volume describes the aggregate economic effects of water management policies on Dutch families, which differ by location, employment, and level of income. It summarizes impacts from the individual sectors of the Dutch economy that were investigated by the PAWN team, and that have been documented in other volumes of this series, and then...

Bolten, J.G. (author)
This volume discusses the data, methodology, results, and conclusions relevant to each aspect of the study. Chapter 2 describes inland shipping operations in the Netherlands and their importance to Western Europe. Chapter 3 discusses shipping costs and the problem of defining what cost elements should be considered in the analysis. Chapter 4...

De Haven, J.C. (author)
This volume describes a screening analysis of eutrophication control tactics for the Netherlands. It determines which tactics are promising by developing estimates of possible tactics' potential effectiveness and costs in Dutch waters on the basis of the literature and a few model results. The tactics considered in the analysis include not only...

The purpose of this volume is to document the cost estimates for a comprehensive set of proposed water management infrastructure tactics. Several concepts of how the costs of infrastructure tactics were selected and used in PAWN and the justifications for them are presented in Chap. 2. There are a few important cost estimating relationships that...

Some of the tactics considered in PAWN involve raising the water level in two large freshwater lakes (the IJsselmeer and Markermeer) in order to store more fresh water for use in the summer dry period. This volume describes models that PAWN developed and used to estimate the change in safety, as measured by the probability of flooding, which...
