Abstract

MIKE BASIN addresses water allocation, conjunctive use, reservoir operation, or water quality issues. It couples ArcGIS with hydrologic modeling to provide basin-scale solutions. The MIKE BASIN philosophy is to keep modeling simple and intuitive, yet provide in-depth insight for planning and management. In MIKE BASIN, the emphasis is on both simulation and visualization in both space and time, making it appropriate for building understanding and consensus. MIKE BASIN is a quasi-steady-state mass balance model, allowing for routed river flows. The water quality solution assumes purely advective transport. Decay during transport can be modeled. The groundwater description uses the linear reservoir equation. Typical areas of application include water availability analysis, conjunctive surface and groundwater use, infrastructure planning, assessing irrigation potential and reservoir performance, estimating water supply capacity, determining waste water treatment requirements. The model has also been used to analyze multisectoral domestic, industry, agriculture, hydropower, navigation, recreation, ecological demands and find equitable trade-offs among them. It has analyzed ecosystems and water quality, minimum discharge requirements, sustainable yield, effects of global change, regulation and water rights and priorities.
