As the editors of this edition, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all those who made the production of the montage effect possible. Firstly, we would like to thank our financial supporters at The University of Arizona: the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, the Graduate College, the Geographic Information Systems and Technology Programs, and the Institute of the Environment. We would also like to thank the School of Geography and Development for providing its continued support of and home to you are here, particularly our faculty advisors, Sallie Marston and Chris Lukinbeal. Additionally, we would like to express our appreciation for our production intern, Tymon Khamsi, and layout design assistant, Isaac D. Davidson, whose patience and dedication to the journal deserves the highest commendation. Finally, we received an overwhelming amount of submissions to the montage effect, and we humbly recognize that the journal would be nothing without the exceptional talent of its contributors.
