From the Paper:

"Humans become a factor in the water pollution problem by overconsumption and the improper disposal of waste. Of primary interest to environmental psychologists is the comprehension of the importance of the correlation between human behavior and the spatial and physical dimensions of the environment. The concept of spatial behavior relates to how individuals regulate and use their spatial environment at different personal, interpersonal, and group levels. Since its infancy, environmental psychology has focused upon the relationship between cognition and physical space. A core concept of environmental psychology is cognitive mapping."
