Article
Full-text available
It is imperative to understand the interconnectedness of water use and hydrological impacts for water policy design underlying varying hydrological conditions across space and over time. However, such analysis remains difficult, constrained by the lack of appropriate modeling tools that fully integrate water policies, water use, and hydrological pr...
Article
Water markets are considered as effective mechanisms to support efficient use of limited water resources and to increase crop production in agricultural systems. This study presents an agent-based modeling (ABM) framework to explore the performance of an agricultural water market under the joint influence of water permit allocation and farmers’ beh...
Article
Analyzing river basins as coupled human and hydrological systems is important to advance our understanding of hydrological processes, and to provide insights into policy design for water resources management. However, assessing spatially heterogeneous and temporally dynamic characteristics of human-hydrological interactions remains a challenge, and...
Article
Full-text available
Flood warnings from various information sources are important for individuals to make evacuation decisions during a flood event. In this study, we develop a general opinion dynamics model to simulate how individuals update their flood hazard awareness when exposed to multiple information sources, including global broadcast, social media, and observ...
Article
Full-text available
Agricultural water markets are considered effective instruments to mitigate the impacts of water scarcity and to increase crop production. However, previous studies have limited understanding of how farmers' behaviors affect the performance of water markets. This study develops an agent-based model to explicitly incorporate farmers' behaviors, name...
Preprint
Full-text available
In many flood-prone areas, it is essential for emergency responders to use advanced computer models to assess flood risk and develop informed flood evacuation plans. However, previous studies have limited understanding of how evacuation performances are affected by the arrangement of evacuation shelters regarding their number and geographical distr...
Article
The emergence of the cellulosic bioeconomy requires not only adequate technological, economic, and policy advances, but also effective communication and coordination among the multiple stakeholders in the bioeconomy community. Aiming to facilitate stakeholder communication and collaboration for cellulosic bioeconomy growth, an agent-based model is...
Article
The design of groundwater exploitation schedules with constraints on pumping-induced land subsidence is a computationally intensive task. Physical process-based groundwater flow and land subsidence simulations are high-dimensional, nonlinear, dynamic and computationally demanding, as they require solving large systems of partial differential equati...
Article
Full-text available
Antibiotic use in crops is an emerging concern, however, human exposure to antibiotics residues through consumption of plant-derived food has generally been neglected. This study is a comprehensive evaluation based on full consideration of exposure sources and analysis for nearly 100 antibiotics. A total of 58 antibiotic compounds were detected in...
Article
Groundwater models are critical for simulating subsurface hydrological processes, guiding informed policy-making for groundwater management. However, the widely applied groundwater models typically use regular-shaped grids to discretize aquifer systems and require that the directions of the grid edges are aligned with the hydraulic conductivity ten...
Article
Understanding farmers’ decision-making on crop choices and water use is essential for agricultural water resource management. However, previous studies have limited understanding of how farmers’ behavioral characteristics affect their crop choices and water use in agricultural systems. To fill this research gap, in this study we develop an agent-ba...
Article
Modeling agriculture-impacted hydrological processes remains a challenge, as information on irrigation activities is often insufficient. This study developed modules for emulating high-resolution irrigation activities and representing water management policies in integrated hydrologic modeling. The new modeling approach was implemented in China's s...
Article
Full-text available
In the outbreak of infectious diseases such as COVID-19, social media channels are important tools for the public to obtain information and form their opinions on infection risk, which can affect their disease prevention behaviors and the consequent disease transmission processes. However, there has been a lack of theoretical investigation into how...
Article
Full-text available
Floods are usually highly destructive, which may cause enormous losses to lives and property. It is, therefore, important and necessary to develop effective flood early warning systems and disseminate the information to the public through various information sources, to prevent or at least mitigate the flood damages. For flood early warning, novel...
