Editorial Reviews

Comprises 29 edited contributions to the September 1996 conference in which NDM (naturalistic decision making) researchers review psychological theory with a focus upon the experienced decision makers who deal with situations characterized by high risk, time pressure, uncertain goals, ambiguous information, and teamwork. Covers a wide range of perspectives and applications from aviation, military, industry, and the emergency services in order to examine the extent to which the NDM approach can explain and predict human performance in such situations.
