This project seeks to understand the long-term interaction of humans, their culture(s) and their environment in southwestern Colorado, USA, from A.D. 600-1300. The research employs agent-based simulation to examine various models for how farmers locate themselves and use resources on this landscape. Agent-based models allow researchers from many disciplines to study a system that is characterized ... Full description.
