Assessment of water resources carrying capacity for the Island of Cres

Marin Kuspilić, Živko Vuković, Ivan Halkijević

Abstract

Water resources carrying capacity (WRCC) is defined as the maximum number of persons (inhabitants) that can be sustained without limitation in a given area, using available renewable water resources. WRCC can be used in sustainability assessments and in the management and strategic planning activities. Data needed for WRCC assessment are often imprecise or stochastic in nature. Sensitivity and uncertainty analysis can be used to quantify reliability of assessment based on imprecision of input data. WRCC assessment for the Island of Cress, based on the above mentioned method, is presented in the paper.

Keywords
water resources carrying capacity, sustainable water resources management, uncertainty analysis, Monte Carlo simulation, sensitivity analysis
