Recreational carrying capacity
|Issue Date: ||2010-10-28T07:43:14Z
The aim of this study was to establish a recreational carrying capacity estimated model for the natural and cultural ecological scenic area of Turtle Island, using Turtle Island itself as the subject of the study. Following a review of the literature, we selected ecological carrying capacity, facilities carrying capacity, and social carrying capacity as indicators for investigation and estimation. Data were collected primarily via questionnaires and on-site investigations. The results indicate that in terms of social carrying capacity, the immediate impression of visitors is that 127 persons is an appropriate amount. On-site estimation puts facilities carrying capacity at 150 persons. In the area of ecological carrying capacity, the immediate impression of visitors is that maximum carrying capacity is 174 persons. Daily recreational carrying capacity analysis indicates that decreasing the turnover of visitors' visitation can alleviate the pressure of increased carrying capacity. The results of the study show that an appropriate estimsted model for the carrying capacity of natural and cultural scenic areas should be established.
