Here, the AA. advocate an approach that is knowledge-theoretic rather than data-theoretic, to capture the much richer sources of knowledge available to the modeller. These sources include third-party reports, personal recollections and diaries, old photographs and press articles, opinions, etc, which are, by convention, either excluded from analysis, or simply added into descriptions of model results at the point of dissemination and consultation of model findings. They conclude by noting that this approach to hydrological modelling fits into current thinking that the process by which publics engage with knowledge must be moved upstream. Here, the production of scientific knowledge comes to include not just scientists and specialists, but also those people for whom model predictions make a material difference
