Second-order Monte Carlo uncertainty/variability analysis using correlated model parameters: Application to salmonid embryo survival risk assessment

Abstract

This paper presents a Monte Carlo uncertainty/variability analysis applied to assessment of salmonid embryo survival affected by the deposition of fine sand in the spawning gravel riverbed. For the system being modeled, the uncertainty originates from the lack of perfect knowledge about the spawning habitat, while the variability arises from the natural… (More)
