Abstract : Management of water systems has become model dependent. These models lead to decisions on future conditions. To be of any value to the decision-making process, we must know the relationship between the model and prototype. One method is to compare qualitative descriptions of the systems' behavior and the differences between the two systems. These comparisons can lead to a strictly quantitative analysis of model and prototype data. Integration of these findings will lead to better water management decisions. This is illustrated specifically with respect to the San Francisco Bay System in this paper.
