Toelichting (Engels) Many parts of the Netherlands are below sea level, upward seepage of seawater occurs in coastal regions. The higher regions suffer from lack of water in the summer. To create favorable conditions for agriculture, the groundwater must be maintained between certain levels. The situation sketched above illustrates the complexity of water management in the Netherlands. The country is unique in its specific hydrological situation combined with a dense population and high level of economic activity. This calls for an extremely demanding water management system employing every possible method, one of which is the use of numerical hydrological models. Since the 1970's hydrological models have been used for system analysis, policy making and decision making
