Project Description

During an emergency, water and land resources managers are required to make decisions quickly and often on the basis of information of poor quality, or needed data is inaccessible, and/or incomprehensibly displayed. Frequently, they need to ask a series of “what if” questions to rapidly determine the next actions to take and are often frustrated by not getting the help and information they need. Sulis is a computer-based decision support system to help decision makers of many types make not only routine decisions but also decisions needed in an emergency.
