|Title:||Adaptive Reservoir Operation Strategies under Changing Boundary Conditions – The Case of Aswan High Dam Reservoir|
During the lifetime of a reservoir its boundary conditions are continuously changing. Such changes include global changes such as climate and economic change as well as national, regional and local changes. National changes are often induced by modified political objectives, regional changes might include supply and demand alterations, while local changes include modifications directly linked to the reservoir infrastructure itself, e.g. reduced storage volume due to sedimentation or dam enlargement or other technical modifications allowing or forcing modified operation strategies and rules. It must be the objective to be prepared for such changes by analysing the consequences of poten-tial future changes, defined by a set a feasible scenarios (multiple futures). If the consequences of development scenarios are analysed before the changes occur, immediate adequate reactions be-come possible. The assessment of sustainable future development includes multiple criteria chosen from the eco-nomic, social and ecologic sectors. Adequate political, administrative and technical measures have to be taken to foster sustainable development. In this thesis BlueM, a model developed by the Institute for Hydraulic and Water Resources En-gineering, Section for Engineering Hydrology and Water Management of the Darmstadt Univer-sity of Technology, Germany, will be used to analyse future development of water resources yield and demand and related modifications of the infrastructure for the case of the Aswan high dam reservoir. High emphasis will be given to the technical and economic aspects of the problem without neglecting the importance and influence of the other sectors. Analysis will be based on the assumption of regional and local change scenarios, their model based analysis and the proposal of adequate reactions by identifying adaptive reservoir operation strategies.
