This exposition of environmental informatics is an attempt to bring current thinking about uncertainty quantification to the environmental sciences. Environmental informatics is a term that I first heard being used by Bronwyn Harch of Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation to describe a research theme within her organisation. Just as bioinformatics has grown and includes biostatistics as a sub-discipline, environmental informatics, or EI, has the potential to be much broader than classical environmental statistics.
