A2: Integrative Modelling of Socio-Environmental System Dynamics

Selected study areas for the first analytical steps
Fig. 1. Selected study areas for the first analytical steps.

The development of an integrative modelling framework to analyze and simulate the spatial and temporal dynamics of transformation, adaptation and reorganization processes in human-nature environments of prehistoric and archaic societies constitutes the main focus of project A2. Based on the data and expert knowledge gained conceptual and computerized models will be set up  in order to simulate the spatio-temporal patterns of development and transformation processes in human-organized landscapes in Europe and the Mediterranean.
