چکیده

در مقاله اصلی، Mohammadi Sedaran et al. (2021) (DOR: 20.1001.1.17352347.1400.17.2.11.4) به ارزیابی ظرفیت برد منابع آب با استفاده از رویکرد ترکیبی شبیه‌­سازی و سیستم شاخص‌­ها در حوضه آبریز زرینه‌رود پرداخته‌­اند. در مقاله فوق، مدل­سازی حوضه آبریز با تمرکز بر کشاورزی با استفاده از مدل SWAT و شناسایی سیستم با استفاده از چارچوب فشار- پشتیبانی- وضعیت انجام شده و سپس مجموعه‌­ای از شاخص‌ها بر اساس مؤلفه­‌های چارچوب فشار- پشتیبانی- وضعیت برای تحلیل استفاده شده است. این پژوهش تحلیلی ارزشمند از سیستم مورد بررسی ارائه می­‌دهد. با این وجود پژوهش فوق با توجه به عنوان استفاده شده، در زمینه تحلیل ظرفیت برد ایراداتی دارد که در این نقد مورد بحث قرار می­‌گیرد. نقد حاضر بر اجزای مقالات فوق شامل (1) مراجع استفاده شده و مسأله پژوهش، (2) تعریف ظرفیت برد استفاده شده، (3) روش شناسی و (4) نتایج و شیوه تحلیل آن است. در این نقد، ابتدا چارچوب نظری نقد بیان می‌شود. سپس، بخش‌­های مختلف مقاله مورد بررسی قرار خواهد گرفت. با بررسی هر بخش، ایراد وارد بر محتوای مذکور ارائه شده و مرجع‌­های مناسب به همراه توصیه­‌های روش‌شناختی در حین بررسی ارائه می‌­شود.

چکیده [English]

In the original paper, Mohammadi Sedaran et al. (2021) (DOR: 20.1001.1.17352347.1400.17.2.11.4) assessed the water resources carrying capacity using a combined simulation-indicators system approach in the Zarrineh-Roud river basin. In the original paper, river basin modeling focuses on agriculture using the SWAT model, and system identification is made using the pressure-support-state framework. Then a set of indicators is used based on the pressure-support-state framework for system analysis. This research provides a valuable analysis of the system under study. However, according to the title used, the mentioned research has some drawbacks in carrying capacity assessment that will be addressed in this discussion. The present discussion criticizes different sections of the original article, including (1) literature review and research problem, (2) the implemented definition of the carrying capacity, (3) methodology, and (4) the results. In this discussion, first, the theoretical framework of the discussion is presented. Then, the different sections of the article will be examined. The objection to the content will be presented by reviewing each section, then appropriate references and methodological recommendations are provided during the review.
