Uncertainty in Wetland Hydrologic Index of Prioritization: Fuzzy Sets
Track: Water Resources
Authors: Martin Alcala Jr
There is a level of uncertainty in the Wetland Hydrologic Index of Prioritization (WHIP) since it is based on an expert group decision making system, the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). The application of fuzzy sets was used to determine uncertainty through comparisons between crisp AHP and five fuzzy AHP (FAHP) methods. For ecological studies such as wetland prioritization it is recommended to use the FAHP that allows the largest range of uncertainty to meet the needs of the stakeholders.
