Our criteria for evaluating social decision-making processes involving low probability, high consequence occurrences are developed in Chapter 4. These criteria are subsequently applied in Chapter 10 to the pesticide regulatory process; in Chapter 16 they are applied to nuclear waste disposal decisions.

low probability/high consequence events that, if we were starting from scratch, we might never consider compensating through tort liability. In these kinds of cases, it is only by chance that any of the requisites for tort liability will be met. Damages from high consequence events mayCited by: 2.

Low-probability, high-consequence events, which are of interest in civil infrastructure risk assessment, are likely to be characterized by a highly nonlinear w(p). We adopt CPT as the default decision method in this study because of its flexibility in incorporating various attitudes toward by:   The frequency of high-impact, low-probability (HILP) events in the last decade such as Hurricane Katrina, the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster and the nuclear crisis and tsunami in Japan, signals the emergence of a new 'normal' – the beginning of a crisis trend.

The report explores two critical dimensions of the decision-making environment. The scope and complexity of these analyses require a high degree of cooperative effort on the part of specialists from many f~elds.

Analyzing technical, social, and value issues requires the efforts of physicists, biologists, geneticists, statisticians, chemists, engineers, political scientists, sociologists, decision analysts, management.
