The CADRe research team in its entirety consisted of professional scientists,
student research assistants, community stakeholders, and representatives of
decision making agencies. The research results would not have achieved as high
a level of success without the participation and contribution from each member of
the group. The following paragraphs express our profound respect and gratitude
to some of the key participants in this research effort.
The support and collaboration of community stakeholders from the Regional
Water Quality Planning Group from the Austin, Texas; Jon Beall, John Noell,
Terry Mitchell, J.T. Stewart, Terry Tull was instrumental in the testing and
evaluation of participatory model building efforts used to complete this research.
In addition the contributions, both technical and participatory, of Assessment and
Planning Staff from the Barton Springs Edwards Aquifer Groundwater
Conservation District, Dr. Brian Smith, Brian Hunt and Kirk Holland, were
indispensable. These engaged groups of volunteer participants set the project
apart and engendered an unusually high level of representation for a real-world
application of the exploratory research.
The administrative and overarching collaborative arrangements between the
University of Texas at Austin and Sandia National Laboratories were arranged by
the Environmental Science Institute, particularly Dr. Jay Banner, Dr. Eric James,
Dr. Nelson Guda, and Kathleen Sebenoler.
Technical guidance and input at various stages throughout the project came from
our colleagues in the following academic departments at The University of Texas
The Digital Media Collaboratory, IC2 Institute:
Dr. Roy Jenevein, Aliza Gold, Jenni Colon and, Matt Hayes
The Jackson School of Geosciences:
Dr. John M. Sharp, Jr., Melody Cornelious, Carol Henderson, Elaine
Goddard, and Lindsey Gulden
Operations Research Group, The Mechanical Engineering Department:
Dr. J.W. Barnes and Michael Ciarleglio
The LBJ School of Public Affairs:
Dr. David Eaton, Marcel Dulay, Erica Allis, and Rima Petrossian
The McCombs School of Business:
Dr. Leon Lasdon
We are indebted and grateful to every participant for their open and
gracious collaboration, their insightful and inspiring ideas, and their dedication to
investigating this topic using such a fully integrated and multi-disciplinary
