Abstract

Cooperation between scientists and local stakeholders on building models requires scientists to listen to lay objections. This paper develops a typology of objections based on discourse analysis of a participatory modeling exercise examining causes and potential solutions to flooding in a Midwest watershed. Four principle objections are examined, together with ways scientists can address them.
