Abstract:

There is an interplay between the risk assessment process, the analysis of uncertainty and the data on which the assessment is based.  In this talk I will discuss the model building and analysis process using a variety of case studies dealing with a variety of stressors and at various geographical scales. Examples will be from a variety of case studies, from the investigation of the risk due to whirling disease to trout, Hg to ecological and human well being endpoints, and nutrients to water quality in estuaries. The process of reducing uncertainty by targeting experimental and field research will be presented and its part in adaptive management explored.

 

LUCRAM stands for Lund University Centre for Risk Assessment and Management. LUCRAM is a multi-disciplinary centre of excellence and spans over a broad field of research interests within risk analysis and management. The centre is composed of researchers at Lund University within the area.
