In Dr. Marston's research experience, "muddy boots" field techniques in physical geography, coupled with GIS have proved to be a powerful combination when seeking solutions to challenging problems in resource use.

This seminar will explore some lessons learned and prospects for the future.

The case studies revealed the value of physical geography and GIS in explaining the integrated, multidisciplinary dimensions of resource use issues and the fact that "place matters" when linking cause-and-effect in environmental issues.
