Short summary
The paper, entitled "A question driven socio-hydrological modeling process", presents a new process for developing conceptual models of coupled socio-hydrological systems. This modeling process is demonstrated by developing a model of a hypothetical system based on a hypothesis linking per capita water demand changes to supply reliability. The resulting model illustrates both the modeling process and the relevance of the hypothesis for reservoir operations policy.
