New at ORI Library:uncertainty and environmental decision making: a handbook of research and best practice
The 21st Century has been dominated to a large extent by international response to certain global environmental challenges like climate change, depleting biodiversity and biocapacity as well as general atmospheric, water and soil pollution problems. As a result, Environmental decision making (EDM) is a socially important field of development for Operations Research and Management Science (OR/MS). Uncertainty is an important feature of these decision problems and it intervenes at very different time and space scales, so the book provides a guided tour of selected methods and tools that OR/MS offer to deal with these issues. The book is available in the ORI Library.
