Many analysts use point estimates and ignore their uncertainty. But we can never be sure about the exact values of numbers based on data. And no practical calculations are without error, even though they may have the appearance of precision. RAMASâ Risk Calc 4.0 Software: Risk Assessment with Uncertain Numbers uses traditional methods such as probability theory and interval analysis and the newest techniques such as probability bounds analysis and fuzzy arithmetic to quantify uncertainty in risk assessments. It creates a convenient environment for computing in which all uncertainties are carried forward automatically. Providing examples in four major application areas, Risk Calc brings sophisticated methods of uncertainty analysis into the reach of anyone who can do arithmetic on a calculator.

Uncertainty in the predictions of science when applied to the environment is an issue of great current relevance in relation to the impacts of climate change, protecting against natural and man-made disasters, pollutant transport and sustainable resource management. However, it is often ignored both by scientists and decision makers, or interpreted as a conflict or disagreement between scientists. This is not necessarily the case, the scientists might well agree, but their predictions would still be uncertain and knowledge of that uncertainty might be important in decision making. Environmental Modelling: An Uncertain Future? introduces students, scientists and decision makers to: the different concepts and techniques of uncertainty estimation in environmental prediction the philosophical background to different concepts of uncertainty the constraint of uncertainties by the collection of observations and data assimilation in real-time forecasting techniques for decision making under uncertainty. This book will be relevant to environmental modellers, practitioners and decision makers in hydrology, hydraulics, ecology, meteorology and oceanography, geomorphology, geochemistry, soil science, pollutant transport and climate change.

This book constitutes the refereed post-proceedings of the 10th IFIP WG 2.5 Working Conference on Uncertainty Quantification in Scientific Computing, WoCoUQ 2011, held in Boulder, CO, USA, in August 2011. The 24 revised papers were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions. They are organized in the following topical sections: UQ need: risk, policy, and decision making, UQ theory, UQ tools, UQ practice, and hot topics. The papers are followed by the records of the discussions between the participants and the speaker.

This volume, Risk-Based Decisionmaking in Water Resources IX, is a collection of papers presented at the Ninth United Engineering Foundation Conference held in Santa Barbara, California on October 15-20, 2000. Participants from government, industry, and universities share their knowledge and experience in the rapidly growing field of risk-based decisionmaking in water resources. Topics include new theoretical and methodological frontiers and the economic dimensions of risk analysis, legislative initiatives and risk assessment, maintenance and rehabilitation, reliability of physical infrastructure, flood frequency and climate non-stationarity, and risk of extreme events.
