Environmental indices (EI) are common communication tool used to describe the overall status of environmental systems (e.g. air, water, soil). Development of EI entails the use of mathematical operators to aggregate various non-commensurate input parameters in a logical manner. Ordered weighted averaging (OWA) operator is a general mean type operator that provides flexibility in the aggregation process such that the aggregated value is bounded between minimum and maximum values of the input… CONTINUE READING
