The process involves an eight step sequence of tasks designed to facilitate the identification of problem conditions (or unacceptable impacts), the determination of potential causal factors affecting the occurrence and severity of unacceptable impacts, and the selection of potential management strategies for ameliorating the unacceptable conditions. A case study from Great Smoky Mountains National Park is used. -Authors
