A review in the recent Science and and here are some of the key points:
1. "The most suitable choice of visualization to illustrate uncertainty depends closely on the objectives of the presenter, the context of the communication, and the audience."
2. "When designing a communication, the desired outcome must be considered from the start." The graphical designs will be different for the purpose of informing vs. persuading/nudging.
3. Risk communication is still more art than science.
4. "Deeper uncertainties do not readily translate into visualizations...so perhaps the greatest challenge is to make a visualization that is attractive and informative, and yet conveys its own contingency and limitations."
