Mediterranean Landscape Dynamics (MedLand) project 2014-2018

(Arizona State University, Universitat de València, University of North Texas, Université de Montréal, San Diego State University, North Carolina State University, & University of Chicago)

Building on the computational and analytical work of the initial phase of the MedLand Project, the second phase adds new fieldwork, more sophisticated modeling, and new model validation tools. It is examining the dynamic feedbacks between land-use decisions and practices, and biogeochemical processes to gain insight into the emergence of the coupled natural and human landscapes that dominate Earth’s terrestrial regions today.

This work is supported by the NSF Coupled Natural and Human Systems Program (grant DEB-1313727). In addition to new modeling tools, this project has involved archaeological fieldwork in Canals de Navarrés valley (Valencia, Spain) in 2014 and 2015, in the region around Finale Ligure (Liguria, Italy) in 2015 and 2016, and in the Hoya de Buñol (near Yátova) in 2017. It also has supported geological and paleoecological fieldwork in eastern Spain in 2016 and 2017.
