Abstract : The methodology and technology used to evaluate behavior within an undersea habitat are described. Such a technology can easily be extended to all manner of environments; accordingly, the value of using such techniques to assess other spaces is discussed. It is argued that such evaluations must consider the costs, rewards and outcomes that environments offer their occupants. This analysis should not only describe the current cost-reward ratio of a setting but also should project how these products of man-environment interaction may shift over time. (Author)
