Groundwater Management in Coastal Regions Using Linear Programming and Genetic Algorithms

Stefanos Karterakis, George Karatzas, Ioannis Nikolos, Maria Papadopoulou & Maria Papadopoulou
In the past optimization techniques have been combined with simulation models to determine cost-effective solutions for various environmental management problems. In the present study, a groundwater management problem in a coastal karstic region in Crere, Greece has been studied using classical (linear programming) and heuristic optimization methods. First, a numerical simulation model of the unconfined coastal aquifer has been developed to represent the complex physical system. Second, the classical linear programming optimization algorithm of the...
