Developing a Method for Studying the Critical Zone: Connecting Archaeological and Precision Agricultural Approaches to Agrarian Landscapes by Making Their Advanced Sensing Data Interoperable

This project studies rural agricultural landscapes as complex entities rooted in long-term human-environment interactions and shaped by contemporary farming practices.
Ongoing
International

Today, rural agricultural landscapes are being fundamentally transformed by the introduction of advanced farming technologies in the form of precision agriculture and by the deployment of new policies and incentives to address the climate crisis, environmental sustainability and food security. This project aims to study rural agricultural landscapes as complex entities rooted in long-term human-environment interactions and shaped by contemporary farming practices in order to engage with this transformation.
