Competitive and optimal control strategies for groundwater pumping by agricultural production units



Competitive and optimal control strategies for groundwater pumping by agricultural production units



Water Resources Research 40(3): W03402



A theoretical model of aquifer exploitation, where groundwater is devoted to agricultural production, is presented here. As new aspects with regard to other models found in literature, the model has explicit formulations for the number of production units and the natural discharge of the aquifer. It is specialized to competitive and optimal control strategies, and a comparison between steady states and trajectories under both strategies is made for ideal aquifers of very different dimensions.
