Uncertainty and Quality in Science for Policy

£50.00

Product description

This book explains the notational system NUSAP (Numeral, Unit, Spread, Assessment, Pedigree) and applies it to several examples from the environmental sciences. The authors are now making further extensions of NUSAP, including an algorithm for the propagation of quality-grades through models used in risk and safety studies. They are also developing the concept of Post-normal Science', in which quality assurance of information requires the participation of extended peer-communities' lying outside the traditional expertise.

A hardback book with no dust jacket in very good condition, some minor shelf wear. Has been signed by one of the authors, Jerome R. Ravetz.
