Research from London School of Economics Provides New Insights into Freshwater Research
2012 JUL 27 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Ecology, Environment & Conservation -- Current study results on Freshwater Research have been published. According to news originating from London, United Kingdom, by VerticalNews correspondents, researchers stated "1."
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research by the authors from the London School of Economics, "There are increasing demands to predict ecohydrological responses to future changes in catchments but such predictions will be inevitably uncertain because of natural variability and different sources of knowledge (epistemic) uncertainty. 2. Policy setting and decision-making should therefore reflect these inherent uncertainties in both model predictions and potential consequences. 3. This is the focus of a U.K. Natural Environment Research Council knowledge exchange project called the Catchment Change Network (CCN)."
According to the news editors, the researchers concluded: "The aim is to bring academics and practitioners together to define Guidelines for Good Practice in incorporating risk and uncertainty into assessments of the impacts of change. 4. Here, we assess the development of such Guidelines in the context of having catchment models of everywhere."
