Environmental Science Policy & Geography

Christopher F. Meindl
I am a geographer interested in human-environment interaction, particularly in people’s perceptions of environmental issues, especially wetlands, natural hazards, and sustainability. My regional focus is on Florida, my methods are usually qualitative and archival, and my approach is as often as not historical. Recently, I have grown interested in defining the relations between political/economic power and environmental problems.
