Grant Announcement: Developing Skills and Methods for LandscapE

Description: Through this cooperative effort, we are proposing to establish a professional development opportunity for students of archaeology and anthropology at the University of New Mexico to gain practical experience and increase their knowledge, skills and abilities in approaching the assessment of cultural resources at the landscape scale. This project would engage students and the University of New Mexico (UNM) Office of Contract Archaeology (OCA) team in the further development and implementation of a landscape-scale database for cultural and natural resources within VALL; the conduct of cultural resource inventories and the establishment of baseline data for future monitoring and management purposes; the development of cultural resource sensitivity modeling tools for inventory sampling, resource location probability, and/or fire/erosion susceptibility; and the professional development of students in all of these tasks.
