In a new paper published in Earth’s Future, Klaus Keller (Dartmouth, formerly PSU) and I try to link the exploratory-modeling, robustness-centric philosophy back to probabilistic models.

Using formal probability models has many advantages. For example, we can deliberately over-sample low-probability regions of the parameter space without distorting our estimates. We can also use simulation-visualization techniques to explore the implications of our (inevitably flawed) assumptions.
