SMART: Sustainable Management
of Scarce Resources
in the Coastal Zone

SMART Demonstration Prototype

SMART builds on a number of interactive tools and models for natural resources analysis.

These tools are applied in five parallel Case Studies, simulating that status quo as well as selected scenarios of future development.

This includes the WaterWare   system, a river basin scale water resources management information and decision support system, that is a central part of the SMART prototype. WaterWare describes a dynamic water budget for a given catchment in terms of water demand and supply, allocation policies, efficiency of use, water quality, and the economics of demand and supply.

The main elements operational in a web environment accessible with a standard web browser and the associated on-line manual pages include the Land Use Change Model (LUC), the Rainfall-Runoff Model (RRM) and its automatic calbration tool (RRMCAL) , and the Water Resources Model (WRM):
