Use the Glacier Inn case study presented in Armitage and Scholey (2009) to serve as an example for integrating these ideas. Alternatively, you can use the Hazard Action Zone case study presented in Murby and Gold (2005) if you’d prefer. BE SPECIFIC THROUGHOUT THE PAPER. Generalities will be rejected.
