SODA The life-force of a Geographer
  • Speculate
  • Why is that there?
  • Helps develop hypothesis (hypotheses) and/or
    research question(s)
  • Observe
  • What do you see in the landscape
  • Support/not support your hypotheses RQ
  • Describe
  • Explain and expound on what you see
  • What did you see? And how did you do it?
  • What method(s) usedand why?
  • How will test hypotheses describe results
  • Note specific and general details of S O,
    perhaps corroborate with others
  • Analyze
  • What do your findings tell you?
  • May result in further hypotheses/research
    questions

5
After SODA
  • SODA POP
  • Propose the next step
  • The Analysis generated through SODA leads to the
    next move, and that move must be formally
    Proposed
  • Organize the results
  • The Proposed next move then needs to be Organized
    in a way that your audience will understand it
  • Present findings
  • Once Organized, the results should be Presented
    hopefully, by the end of the Presentation, there
    is even more valuable feedback

After SODA
  • SODA CAN
  • Conclusion
  • The Analysis can also lead to a Conclusion
  • Maybe what you've discovered is something
    entirely new
  • Application
  • A Conclusion should then lead to an Application
  • How can what you've discovered be used? Why is it
    important?
  • New Knowledge
  • The Application, in most cases, isor at least
    leads toNew knowledge, and this can then be
    shared with the world (however small your world
    may be)

(some) Human Geography Field Methods
  • Qualitative vs. Quantitative
  • Surveys
  • Questionnaires
  • Interviews, in situ and otherwise
  • Participant-observation vs. Observing-participant
  • Ethnography
  • Archival research
  • Landscape interpretation
  • Cognitive mapping
  • Photo-documenting

(some) Physical Geography Field Methods
  • Quantitative vs. Qualitative
  • Mathematical models
  • Theoretical models
  • Getting dirty
  • Soil, water, landform, plants, animals, weather
  • Technical equipment
  • Stream gauge
  • Meteorological assessment
  • Clinometer, thermister, IRT

Discussion
  • Geography is our epistemology (our way of
    knowing)
  • The field has long been a core of our ontology
    (our way of being)
  • Spatial-analytical synthesis capability is our
    method (our way of doing)
  • Do human and physical geography field methods
    overlap?
  • What are some of the overlaps?

12
Mixed Methods
  • Human Comfort Index
  • Visitor impact on a Park
  • Building/Urban Sprawl
  • Alternative energy use and design
  • Hydrological assessment (think water)
  • Forest fire impacts
  • Distance Decay
  • GIS/RS for assessment
