During Operation Swamp Fox I this study was designed to describe all factors of the tropical forest environment of eastern Panama which affect overland movement. Topics covered are climatology and meteorology, geology, physiography, soils, trafficability, hydrography, botany, and cultural geography. Included are field observations and literature reviews. It is concluded that the major deterrents to mobility in the area traversed by Swamp Fox I were slippery soils on slopes, narrow gullies, and dense jungle growths. It was also concluded that the area traversed by Swamp Fox I was not in all respects typical of surrounding areas. Author
