calendar
Jul 31st, 1996 - Aug 8th, 1996
location
Aspen

This workshop centered on refining and standardizing practices for ranking confidence in scientific findings. A variety of groups was included in the discussion from decision analysts, statisticians, and media analysts to IPCC lead authors. The objective was to improve consistency in reporting uncertainty, as well as to improve public communications about uncertainty in findings. Ideas from the workshop contributed to the characterization of uncertainty and confidence developed by the IPCC.
