This book is a compilation of several years of experience in developing and using model-based decision support systems (DSSs). As discussed in the introduction, there are many settings for decision making. The abundance of possible settings often confuses the discussion on decision support. Therefore, we have restricted our attention in this book to a particular class of decision situations or decision-making settings, corresponding mostly to diverse environmental applications. In this way we hope to increase the verifiability of our assumptions and the consistency of our approach.
