Abstract

This paper is concerned with qualitative rather than quantitative unpredictability. For example, rather than a concern with estimating runoff volumes or peak flows associated with land use change, the issue is whether runoff will increase, decrease, or remain relatively unchanged. Only when fundamental questions of qualitative unpredictability are addressed successfully is it appropriate to turn attention to the quantitative exactness of predictions. In other words, the concern here is with accuracy rather than precision
