|Issue Date:||2015||Journal:||Water (Switzerland)||Abstract:||The uncertainty associated with natural magnitudes and processes is conspicuous in water resources and groundwater evaluation. This uncertainty has an essential component and a part that can be reduced to some extent by increasing knowledge, improving monitoring coverage, continuous elaboration of data and accuracy and addressing the related economic and social aspects involved. Reducing uncertainty has a cost that may not be justified by the improvement that is obtainable, but that has to be known to make the right decisions. With this idea, this paper contributes general comments on the evaluation of groundwater resources in the semiarid Canary Islands and on some of the main sources of uncertainty, but a full treatment is not attempted, nor how to reduce it.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/18629||ISSN:||2073-4441||DOI:||10.3390/w7062952||Source:||Water[ISSN 2073-4441],v. 7 (6), p. 2952-2970||Rights:||by-nc-nd|
