Inhibited field work
Other Names: Practical difficulties of scientific field research
Nature: Research in many areas requires field work. Some field work tasks require equipment or services that it is impractical to take along to where data are being gathered. For example, botanists require reference books in order to identify the plants that they collect, but the books are heavy and awkward to carry on foot.
Problem Type: G: Very specific problems
