  1. What is the purpose of your study?
  2. What methods will you use, including dates of fieldwork and location?
  3. How will the study likely impact natural and cultural resources? And how do you plan to minimize those impacts?
  4. How will the study likely impact visitor experiences?
  5. How do you plan to manage and share your data?
  6. How do you plan to manage your safety during your fieldwork?
