A general framework is proposed to examine sustainability of environmental resources in objective, measurable ways. By using soil quality as an example, sustainability research is taken beyond theory and into application. Endowment of a natural resource can be modeled as an index of quality to assess the degree of sustainable management. This index, consisting of the most important identifying characteristics of the resource, is placed into a dynamic model of production to determine how resource use affects three different versions of sustainability. The economic, social, and environmental impacts are identified for each sustainability requirement, and the long-term path of resource quality is evaluated.
