Abstract:In a public recreation area where natural use levels are too high, it is proposed that each visitor group should be able to apply for one of several use-level opportunities, each associated with a risk of having the application rejected. The risks are inversely proportional to the use intensity associated with each opportunity. This should match people with their desired degrees of solitude and naturalness. When the quantities and types of opportunities are adjusted to meet demand, the total area use level is the carrying capacity.
