Risk Perception in Provision of Aquatic Ecosystem Services

This Pursuit proposes to convene a group of diverse scholars with expertise on the biophysical, psychological, socio-economic, health, and regulatory aspects of water quality issues to:

  1. Develop comparable measures of objective risk signals for HCBs in the Lake Erie and Lake Champlain basins.
  2. Compile data sources on subjective risks/beliefs to create a dataset of psychological and socio-economic risk signals to integrate with the objective risk database.
  3. Use systems modeling techniques to test the hypothesis that amplification of subjective risk perceptions may trigger a shift in policy cycle from ineffective to effective; and dampening of subjective risk perceptions may trigger policy cycle to shift from effective to ineffective cycle.
