What Does the Future Hold for the Rio Grande?
What can system dynamics (SD) modeling of the Rio Grande tell us
about its future? Mr. Malczynski is a Sandia economist specializing
in SD modeling of critical infrastructure and natural resources. He
describes the creation of a complex model intended to illustrate
possible future changes in the river system and the possible impacts
of those changes on ecology, agriculture, urban environments, and
economic systems. The model, created by a multi-agency
partnership, will help stakeholders create a 50-year water plan for
the Rio Grande.
Leonard A. Malczynski is an economist and
software engineer. He began his software
engineering career with the advent of the first
personal computers and has worked with a
variety of platforms and operating systems.
His specialties are in database management
systems, system dynamics modeling, and
geographic information systems. Over the
past fourteen years he has concentrated on the
building of system dynamics models of the
nuclear fuel cycle, world energy consumption,
water basin management, international conflict, and international
migration. He was a member of the Office of the Chief Economist
at Sandia National Laboratories from 1998-2005. His current
activities involve professional work in the System Dynamics
Society, a software specialization in Powersim Studio, and
development of software engineering techniques applicable to
system dynamics modeling. Leonard has taught information
systems and economics courses at the University of New Mexico
and the College of Santa Fe since 1988. Prior to Sandia National
Laboratories he spent 10 years as an independent information
systems consultant in Africa, Asia,
Asia, and
