About this book

Recent years have seen rapid advances in computer technology and in the application of systems analysis to environmental problems. These advances were discussed and critically assessed at the Watermatex '91 conference. The proceedings, which cover the principles of modelling, policy and planning, operations and control and new technologies and expert systems, provide a bridge between theory and practice in the use of systems analysis applied to water quality management and other aspects of the water cycle.
