|Abstract:||This paper describes validation of an appropriateness framework, which has been developed in a former
study, to determine appropriate models under uncertainty in a decision support system for river basin
management. Models are regarded as ‘appropriate’ if they produce final outputs within adequate uncertainty
bands that enable decision-makers to distinguish or rank different river engineering measures.
The appropriateness framework has been designed as a tool to stimulate the use of models in decisionmaking
under uncertainty and to strengthen the communication between modelers and decision-makers.
Through the application to a different river with different objectives in this validation study from the river
used in the development stage, this paper investigates whether the appropriateness framework works in
a different situation than it was designed for. Recommendations from the development stage are taken
into account in this validation case study as well. The final results from the study showed a successful
validation of the appropriateness framework and suggested further possibilities for the application in
decision support systems for river basin management.
