Generation and analysis of model simulation Scenarios

Summary
Abstract: Analyzing and managing the high volumes of input and output of complex river
basin models is a major task. These models are used to simulate water quantity
and quality for numerous scenarios of changes in land use, land-use management
practices, and water- management operations. To assist with that process, an
interactive computer program, GENeration and analysis of model simulation
SCeNarios (GenScn), was developed to create simulation scenarios, analyze
results of the scenarios, and compare scenarios.
