Lake Eutrophication Management

  • János D. Pintér
Part of the Nonconvex Optimization and Its Applications book series (NOIA, volume 6)


As already discussed in previous chapters, due to the worldwide danger of environmental degradation, water quality management has attracted increasing attention in the last decades. A large number of descriptive (simulation, assessment) and management (scenario analysis, optimization) models have been developed and applied to assist decision-making. The interrelated (sub)models frequently have very different temporal and/or spatial scaling and underlying information structure, so that their proper combination poses a significant challenge. Moreover, even recognizing the inherent stochasticity of the management problems studied—and analysing them in detail by descriptive submodels—most optimization models are formulated as deterministic: this transition requires a carefully balanced approach.
