Presents the recreation displacement process from a social-psychological perspective and models it within the altitude-behavior framework. The displacement process is illustrated with empirical results from a study of use within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Findings show that factors of displacement include litter, noise, overuse, and visual encounters with others. In most cases, recreation resource administrators should be able to control displacing factors.-Authors
