CASE STUDY CRITIQUE; UPPER CLINCH CASE STUDY
Smith* Jr., J E. CASE STUDY CRITIQUE; UPPER CLINCH CASE STUDY. Presented at EPA/NCEA Workshop on Integrating Economics and Environmental Risk Assessment, Cincinnati, OH, July 17 - 19, 2001.
Case study critique: Upper Clinch case study (from Research on Methods for Integrating Ecological Economics and Ecological Risk Assessment: A Trade-off Weighted Index Approach to Integrating Economics and Ecological Risk Assessment). This critique answers the questions: 1) does this case study adequately and appropriately integrate ecological risk assessment and economics in a manner that will support decision making for environmental management and how could the method used in the study be improved; and 2) Are risk management alternatives accurately reflected?
