Abstract

This paper argues for explicit assessments of uncertainty in environmental data and models as a necessary, although not a sufficient, condition for balancing uncertain scientific arguments against uncertain social, ethical, moral and legal arguments in managing environmental systems. In particular, this paper aims to : demonstrate the importance of assessing uncertainty within a realist research framework; consider the nature of scientific uncertainty as the basis for developing methodologies that question belief; and explore some important aspects of a methodology for evaluating uncertainties in environmental research
