Education


Research and Teaching Interests

Jay Lund has research and teaching interests in the application of systems analysis, economic, and management methods to infrastructure and public works problems. His recent work is primarily in water resources and environmental system engineering, but with substantial work in solid and hazardous waste management, dredging and coastal zone management, and some dabbling in urban, regional, and transportation planning. While most of this work involves the application of economics, optimization, and simulation modeling, his interests also include more qualitative policy, planning, and management studies.  Examples of this work can be found below.

Major Research Areas

Large-Scale Water - Environmental System Management

Large-scale regional water systems provide much of the world's water supply, flood control, and hydropower, and have major effects on the environment and recreation. Research in this area has involved several studies in large-scale optimization for water supply, flood control, and conflict resolution among multiple purposes.  Both practical and theoretical aspects of this problem are of interest.  Combining theory with applied policy is especially interesting.  Examples include: The most ambitious of these projects is the CALVIN project, developing a California-wide economic-engineering optimization model for water supply and environmental purposes.  This project is in collaboration with Richard Howitt of the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics.  It has found numerous applications.

Integrated Urban Water Supply Planning and Management

Urban water supply planning, in California, the U.S., and the rest of the world, requires integrated design and management of often diverse water supplies (including water transfers and wastewater reuse) and various water conservation measures. Research in this area has involved:

Water Transfers and Markets

Water transfers or markets have become a commonly-suggested solution for water problems, particularly in the western U.S. Recent work in this areas has:
California Drought Water Transfer Report (1992) (579 kb)
Water Transfers in Water Resource Systems (1995)
Recent California Water Transfers: Implications for Water Management (1995)

Reservoir Operation

Reservoirs are a major component of water management systems.  Their operation has substantial effects on the performance of overall water systems.  Research in this area focuses on the development of operating rules which are derived to be optimal in terms of operating objectives and the integration of reservoir operations into the policy, planning, and operations of integrated water resource systems:

Economic Design and Evaluation of Stormwater Quality Management

(Currently inactive in this area) Non-point sources, such as stormwater, have come to dominate water quality concerns for the environment. Non-point sources also are expensive and difficult to manage, monitor, and evaluate in terms of technical performance. Our work has applied contemporary methods in cost-effectiveness and benefit-cost analysis to evaluate the desirability of different stormwater quality control measures, including both their costs and their likely water quality benefits. Specific products include:

Systems Engineering for Municipal Solid and Hazardous Waste Management

(Currently inactive in this area)  Municipal solid waste management has become more complex in recent years with increases in disposal costs and environmental concerns and legislation. In trying to apply systems analysis and economic techniques to this engineering problem, we have:

GIGO Solid Waste Management Model (Compressed EXCEL and WORD files):  Spreadsheets (1993) ,Documentation (1993)

Economic and Risk-based Planning of Dredging and Beach Nourishment Systems

(Currently inactive in this area)  Waterborne commerce  relies on effective and efficient maintenance of ports and waterways.  The economic design of beach nourishment turn out to have similar physical processes and mathematical forms.  Several projects with various Corps of Engineers offices examined these issues.
