Career Summary

Biography

Professor Kuczera is recognised as a world authority on the theory and application of Bayesian statistical methods in hydrology and water resources. His research addresses the fundamental problem in application of hydrology to water engineering, namely limited predictive ability arising from large errors in data and model errors arising from limited understanding of dynamics and complexity. His work has focused on developing methods that make the best use of limited information and quantifying uncertainty to inform the decision making process. In recent years he and his team have developed BATEA, Bayesian total error analysis, which provides a comprehensive treatment of all major sources of uncertainty affecting hydrologic prediction.

He has made significant contributions in the area of water resources systems analysis. In recent years his team has developed decision support systems for urban water resource planning that use multi-objective optimization to identify optimal trade-off portfolios of capital and operational options.  His work on integrated urban water management seeks to maximize community benefits by integrating water supply, storm water and waste water at small to large scales.

His early industry experience and subsequent close association have influenced his research program. A feature of his work has been a commitment to develop his work to the point at which it can be taken up by the higher end of the industry. Achievements of significant practical value include the following:

  • Development of WATHNET5, a generalized simulation and optimization model of urban water supply systems to assist in drought security planning: WATHNET5 introduces new optimization capabilities to the urban water sector and is presently used by several major urban water agencies.

  • Development of flood frequency guidelines and software: The publication, Australian Rainfall and Runoff, is the industry standard for flood estimation. Kuczera undertook a major revision of the flood frequency guidelines and produced supporting software which has been commercially released asTUFLOW FLIKE.

  • Kuczera and his team developed a stochastic rainfall modelling framework to assist flood risk design. It can produce 6-minute rainfall time series of arbitrary length at virtually any location with a daily rainfall record. The developed software DRIP has been released for industry use.

One of the fundamental steps in regional rainfall frequency analysis is deciding the method by which rainfall stations are to be grouped together to form regions. This paper compares three methods of forming regions for use in estimating design rainfalls: a fixed region approach where all the available sites are included in a single region, a Region of Influence (ROI) approach based on geographical proximity and a hybrid approach where sites with similar topographic orientations are grouped together.The three region types were implemented in a Bayesian Generalized Least Squares Regression (BGLSR) framework which leads to regionalized regression equations that can be used to predict rainfall L-moments at ungauged sites. A leave-one-out cross validation approach was used to compare the relative accuracy, reliability and uncertainty of the derived rainfall statistics and resulting estimates of the rainfall quantiles. The study used data from two areas of Australia chosen for their highly varied topography and different climatic influences.It was found that all three methods provided good estimates of the L-moment statistics and the rainfall quantiles. The hybrid approach produced the smallest errors in the South-East Queensland region whilst for the Tasmanian region the fixed region approach was best. The results from this study show that although there is a slight benefit in using the proposed hybrid approach for BGLSR, these benefits were minor compared to maximizing the number of stations used to calibrate the BGLSR equations. This conclusion regarding the number of stations could be tested in future work by repeating the analyses in areas with sparser station density. Another test could be to simulate reduced station coverage in the current study areas by leaving stations out of the analyses. Finally it would be interesting to see if similar results are obtained by expanding the study area so that different climatological regimes are assessed.

Multi-objective optimization methods require many thousands of objective function evaluations. For urban water resource problems such evaluations can be computationally very expensive. The question as to which optimization method is the best choice for a given function evaluations budget in urban water resource problems remains unexplored. The main objective of this paper is to address this question. The second objective is to develop a new optimization algorithm, efficient multi-objective ant colony optimization-I (EMOACO-I), which exploits the good performance of ant colony optimization enhanced using ideas borrowed from evolutionary optimization. Its performance was compared against three established methods (NSGA-II, SMPSO, eMOEA) using two case studies based on the urban water resource systems serving two major Australian cities. The case study problems involved two or three objectives and 10 or 13 decision variables affecting infrastructure investment and system operation. The results show that NSGA-II was the worst performing method. However, none of the remaining methods was unambiguously superior. For example, while EMOACO-I converged more rapidly, its diversity was comparable but not superior to the other methods. Greater differences in performance were found as the number of objectives and case study complexity increased. This suggests that pooling the results from a number of methods could help guard against the vagaries in performance of individual methods.

We introduce a novel methodology for measuring stand sapwood area (SA), which provides a useful indicator of evapotranspiration from forest stands. The method is demonstrated in a 73-year-old Eucalyptus regnans forest comprising 784 stems over a 5ha area. We used photos of stump cross-sections to differentiate sapwood from heartwood and found 90% of stump segments to have a visible transition boundary. The digital images were corrected for lens distortion and scaled to an actual cross-sectional area, with resulting stump perimeters corresponding well with field-measured perimeters traced using string (root-mean-square error=4cm, R2=0.99). Calculated SA and basal area (BA) at stump height were coupled with tree and sapwood taper data to predict the SA:BA ratio at 1.3m height (R^1.3). Tree taper data were coupled with stump dimensions data in a mixed-effects model to predict each stump's BA at 1.3m, and sapwood taper data from buttress logs were used to improve each stems R^1.3. Using this procedure, we found our study site to have an R^1.3 of 0.21 and total stand SA at 1.3m height of 9.3m2ha-1. We quantified the bias in traditional R^1.3 estimates that use cores to measure sapwood thickness and diameter tape to calculate SA. We show traditional methods underestimate R^1.3 that increases with tree diameter and decreases with stem circularity, whereas our methodology gave more accurate measures of SA in large buttressing trees. Our methodology also provides a more efficient way of generating maps of SA variation across large forested catchments.

Urban bulk water systems supply water with high reliability and, in the event of extreme drought, must avoid catastrophic economic and social collapse. In view of the deep uncertainty about future climate change, it is vital that robust solutions be found that secure urban bulk water systems against extreme drought. To tackle this challenge an approach was developed integrating: 1) a stochastic model of multi-site streamflow conditioned on future climate change scenarios; 2) Monte Carlo simulation of the urban bulk water system incorporated into a robust optimization framework and solved using a multi-objective evolutionary algorithm; and 3) a comprehensive decision space including operating rules, investment in new sources and source substitution and a drought contingency plan with multiple actions with increasingly severe economic and social impact. A case study demonstrated the feasibility of this approach for a complex urban bulk water supply system. The primary objective was to minimize the expected present worth cost arising from infrastructure investment, system operation and the social cost of "normal" and emergency restrictions. By introducing a second objective which minimizes either the difference in present worth cost between the driest and wettest future climate change scenarios or the present worth cost for driest climate scenario, the trade-off between efficiency and robustness was identified. The results show that a significant change in investment and operating strategy can occur when the decision maker expresses a stronger preference for robustness and that this depends on the adopted robustness measure. Moreover, solutions are not only impacted by the degree of uncertainty about future climate change but also by the stress imposed on the system and the range of available options.

Significant population increase in urban areas is likely to result in a deterioration of drought security and level of service provided by urban water resource systems. One way to cope with this is to optimally schedule the expansion of system resources. However, the high capital costs and environmental impacts associated with expanding or building major water infrastructure warrant the investigation of scheduling system operational options such as reservoir operating rules, demand reduction policies, and drought contingency plans, as a way of delaying or avoiding the expansion of water supply infrastructure. Traditionally, minimizing cost has been considered the primary objective in scheduling capacity expansion problems. In this paper, we consider some of the drawbacks of this approach. It is shown that there is no guarantee that the social burden of coping with drought emergencies is shared equitably across planning stages. In addition, it is shown that previous approaches do not adequately exploit the benefits of joint optimization of operational and infrastructure options and do not adequately address the need for the high level of drought security expected for urban systems. To address these shortcomings, a new multiobjective optimization approach to scheduling capacity expansion in an urban water resource system is presented and illustrated in a case study involving the bulk water supply system for Canberra. The results show that the multiobjective approach can address the temporal equity issue of sharing the burden of drought emergencies and that joint optimization of operational and infrastructure options can provide solutions superior to those just involving infrastructure options. © 2014.

The development and application of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) and other metaheuristics for the optimisation of water resources systems has been an active research field for over two decades. Research to date has emphasized algorithmic improvements and individual applications in specific areas (e.g. model calibration, water distribution systems, groundwater management, river-basin planning and management, etc.). However, there has been limited synthesis between shared problem traits, common EA challenges, and needed advances across major applications. This paper clarifies the current status and future research directions for better solving key water resources problems using EAs. Advances in understanding fitness landscape properties and their effects on algorithm performance are critical. Future EA-based applications to real-world problems require a fundamental shift of focus towards improving problem formulations, understanding general theoretic frameworks for problem decompositions, major advances in EA computational efficiency, and most importantly aiding real decision-making in complex, uncertain application contexts.

Uncertainty in the rainfall inputs, which constitute a primary forcing of hydrological systems, considerably affects the calibration and predictive use of hydrological models. In a recent paper, Ajami et al. [2007] proposed the Integrated Bayesian Uncertainty Estimator (IBUNE) to quantify input, parameter and model uncertainties. This comment analyzes two interpretations of the IBUNE method and compares them to the Bayesian Total Error Analysis (BATEA) method [Kavetski et al., 2002, 2006a]. It is shown that BATEA and IBUNE are based on the same hierarchical conceptualization of the input uncertainty. However, in interpretation A of IBUNE, the likelihood function, and hence the posterior distribution, are random functions of the inferred variables, which violates a standard requirement for probability density functions (pdf). A synthetic study shows that IBUNE-A inferences are inconsistent with the correct parameter values and model predictions. In the second interpretation, IBUNE-B, it is shown that a specific implementation of IBUNE is equivalent to a special Metropolis-Hastings sampler for the full Bayesian posterior, directly including the rainfall multipliers as latent variables (but not necessarily storing their samples). Consequently, IBUNE-B does not reduce the dimensionality of the sampling problem. Moreover, the jump distribution for the latent variables embedded in IBUNE-B is computationally inefficient and leads to prohibitively slow convergence. Modifications of these jump rules can cause convergence to incorrect posterior distributions. The primary conclusion of this comment is that, unless the hydrological model and the structure of data uncertainty allow specialized treatment, Bayesian hierarchical models invariably lead to high-dimensional computational problems, whether working with the full posterior (high-dimensional sampling problem) or with the marginal posterior (high-dimensional integration problem each time the marginal posterior is evaluated). © 2009 by American Geophysical Union.

Hidden Markov models (HMMs) offer a plausible representation of long-term hydroclimatic persistence in rainfall and streamflow observations. Persistent climate processes influence hydrological observations at various time scales. This paper develops the stochastic framework of two-state HMMs to better represent climate-rainfall interactions at both monthly and annual levels. Two new models, a hierarchical HMM and a non-homogeneous HMM are introduced, and fitted to monthly rainfall and streamflow observations from Australia. The value of these models to identify two-state persistence is compared to that of existing two-state HMMs.

Removal of native vegetation has led to salinisation of soils and streams in the southwest region of Western Australia. The water balance regime has been affected in most deforested catchments with four significant changes: (1) an increase of streamflow, (2) a rise of deep groundwater, (3) an expansion of groundwater discharge zones and (4) an increase of stream chloride concentration. This study overviews the identification and calibration of a conceptual hydrosalinity model CATPRO to simulate these changes. Calibration of CATPRO to streamflow only failed to identify model structure consistent with increasing stream chloride loads. In contrast, joint calibration to monthly time series of streamflow, stream chloride and average groundwater levels yielded good results and identified model structure consistent with all four observed changes. It is concluded that stream chloride and groundwater data can significantly enhance the power of streamflow data in the testing and identification of catchment models. Results are reported for five catchments, of which two are forested and three have been disturbed by forest clearing.

The calibration of the RORB runoff-routing model to several storm events is considered. In a case study involving several Victorian catchments, it was found that the RORB parameters inferred from one storm event were frequently statistically incompatible with parameters inferred from other storms over the same catchment. Greatest inter-storm variation was displayed by the continuing loss parameter. This suggests that the concept of unique catchment parameters is questionable. The statistical implication of this on calibration and extrapolation to the design flood is considered. A random effects model is presented, which views storm parameters as being random and independent samples from a probability model; the random effects may be due to parameter bias arising from errors in catchment rainfall, or due to model simplification. Using this model the pooled mean and covariance matrix of the RORB parameters can be derived. Unlike simple averaging, the pooled mean makes explicit allowance for storm event data of varying quality. The computation of lower and upper bound prediction limits on the design hydrograph is discussed. It is found that the relative width of the prediction limits depends on what is believed to be the cause of incompatibility between storms and also on the depth of the design storm. Details are presented on the implementation of this pooling methodology using the NLFIT nonlinear regression program suite.

Simulation of urban headworks water supply systems typically ignores uncertainty in demand. A methodology is presented for including demand uncertainty. In a case study using the trend extrapolation demand model it is shown that inclusion of demand uncertainty in the simulation can significantly reduce expected system reliability. A similar finding applies to uncertainty in streamflow model parameters. Another case study demonstrates that the use of static simulation techniques can lead to incorrect estimates to transient system performance especially in systems with large carryover capacity.

The variable contributing area concept of surface runoff generation is particularly relevant to a significant proportion of temperature and semi-arid Australian catchments where duplex soils or the presence of a layer of low permeability leads to the development of an ephemeral, perched water table at shallow depth. The perched water table may intersect the soil surface and therefore produce saturated overland flow. It may be the primary source of streamflow and its presence will significantly affect recharge to any deep, regional aquifer. A lumped-parameter catchment process model, CATPRO, explicitly including a perched aquifer, has been developed with the aim of predicting recharge rates to regional scale aquifers. The model requires daily rainfall and potential evapotranspiration data. It is calibrated to monthly streamflow data using the interactive, Bayesian parameter optimization scheme NLFIT. A case study is presented demonstrating the use of CATPRO to predict regional groundwater recharge and to compute confidence limits which quantify the effect of uncertainty in calibrated parameters, a methodology which has been used with only limited success to date.

WASP is a computer simulation package capable of efficiently simulating the headworks operation of a wide range of water supply systems. Its generality is due to the use of an efficient linear programming algorithm (referred to as the network LP) which assigns water according to several criteria including user defined storage target curves. WASP has been designed to fully exploit this generally giving the user a versatile planning and operational tool. It enables rapid and effective assessment of changes to system configuration and/or operating policy. This paper discusses the principles used to develop WASP and presents a case study of the Melbourne system illustrating WASP's ability to simulate the historic operation of a complex system. (A)

Water distribution networks throughout the world are ageing, which increasingly leads to sudden pipe failure. About 108 trunkmain pipe failures in an urban sub-network were investigated using a pipe failure data base and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) data to understand the contribution of hydraulic pressure to pipe failure using multiple lines of evidence. The forensic investigation revealed a dominant system-wide failure mode which was characterized by predominately off-peak high speed pumping with limited pressure relief from downstream reservoirs. A frequency analysis was conducted for greater understanding of the dominant failure mode.
