PERCEIVED HAZARD AND PRODUCT CHOICE: AN APPLICATION TO RECREATIONAL
SITE CHOICE

This study improves upon the standard "dummy variable" approach to modeling fish consumption advisories by jointly estimating
a "perceived hazard" model and a site choice model. The perceived hazard model overcomes the shortcomings of the dummy
variable model, namely that all anglers respond equally to advisories and that all anglers know of and believe the advisories. We
find that anglers' perceived hazards associated with consumption advisories do affect product (recreational site) choice. Anglers'
perceptions also affect welfare measures, where the benefits of contaminant removal follow a more reasonable pattern than that of
the dummy variable approach. The joint perceived hazard/product choice model is applicable to a wide variety of risky choices...

WILDFIRE FUELS MANAGEMENT: A NESTED ROTATION APPROACH APPLIED TO
PONDEROSA PINE FORESTS
Provedor de dados: 31

Vegetative fuels management for wildfire risk mitigation is increasing recognized as a crucial complement to suppression. We
develop a nested rotation model to examine the fuel treatment timing in the context of a forest environment where part of the
values at risk are standing timber to be harvested. Simulations are performed for a representative ponderosa pine forest, and
implications of the model for policy issues are discussed, including 1) the effects of public suppression of wildfire on private fuel
management incentives, 2) externality problems when non-timber values such as wildland-urban interface property is not
accounted for in private fuel management decisions.

Deficit irrigation and increasing irrigation application efficiency were analysed as water-utilisation strategies through
chance-constrained linear programming (CCLP) to establish whether these strategies were economically advantageous and water
