Sorts and locations of uncertainty addressed

The Stanford Protocol and its variants typically address inexactness in inputs and parameters, and are focused mainly on statistical uncertainty. The Risbey et al. (2001) protocol combines an elicitation on PDFs with an elicitation of the parameter pedigree (see also van der Sluijs et al. 2001, and the NUSAP entry in this tool catalogue), and therefore addresses also the unreliability of inputs, parameters and instruments (or model structure).

In principle expert elicitation techniques can be tailored and used to elicit and encode subjective expert judgements on any sort of uncertainty at any location distinguished in the uncertainty typology.
