  abstract =     "Relationship between the data, such as direct
                 observations of nature and recorded measurements, and
                 the models is very complicated in the 'water domain'.
                 It is not at all as clear and explicit as it is often
                 presented by teachers to students, by consultants to
                 clients, or by authors to readers of publications. A
                 number of aspects of this relationship are discussed
                 using examples to illustrate the author's views.
                 Limitations of data-driven tools (correlations,
                 Artificial Neuronal Networks, Genetic Algorithms, etc.)
                 and data-mining, when applied without physical
                 knowledge of the relevant phenomena, are discussed, as
                 are those of deterministic models. The currently used
                 'good practice' paradigm in modelling (the model is to
                 be set up, calibrated, validated and run) is rejected
                 when deterministic models are concerned. They should
                 not be calibrated. A new paradigm, a new 'code of good
                 practice', is proposed instead. Strategic and tactical
                 aspects of various available approaches to modelling of
                 physical phenomena and data exploitation have practical
                 engineering and financial consequences, most often
                 immediate and sometimes very important: hence the
                 significance of the subject that concerns the everyday
                 occupations of modellers, their clients and
