Abstract

This review considers methodologies that have or can be employed to incorporate streamflow forecasts into reservoir policies and operating decisions. These include the use of streamflow forecasts in deterministic optimization models, use of multiple stage decision trees, stochastic analytical optimization models with linearized reservoir dynamics, and sophisticated stochastic models that can describe the joint distribution of streamflows and forecasts in the optimization of reservoir operations.
