      An ecosystem model is an abstract, usually mathematical, representation of an ecological system (ranging in scale from an individual population, to an ecological community, or even an entire biome), which is studied to better understand the real system..

Archaeological predictive modelling (APM) is an important method for archaeological research and cultural heritage management. This study tests the viability of a new statistical method for APM.

Frequency ratio (FR) is widely used in the field of geosciences but has not been applied in APM. This study tests FR in a catchment from the north-eastern part of Romania to predict the possible Cited by: 1. These are the environmental variables discussed in detail in Chapter 6.

The same variables were used in both the site and survey probability models. Most of the environmental variables used in Mn/Model have a truly continuous distribution of values. For instance, distance to water can range from 0. Environmental archaeology is the study of past human economy and environment using earth and life sciences.

It tells us about ecological, cultural, economic, and climate change. Archaeological sites are created by human activity involving material culture (acquisition, manufacture, use, deposition). Archaeological sites and landscapes are.

Predictive modelling is a technique used to predict archaeological site locations in a region on the basis of observed. To predict the location of archaeological sites, the group constructing the model first had to establish a database that recorded where known sites are and where sites have not been found.

The information used to compile this archaeological database, which includes both site and non-site data, was taken from several different sources. The main physical environmental variables to be controlled are identified as air temperature and relative humidity for climate and illuminance and exposure time for lighting.

Other physical environmental parameters are a main cause of deterioration phenomena, such as the air velocity around the object, the radiant temperature, the lighting.

The geo-archaeological variables at the location of known sites are tested against the background environment as a whole to identify whether there are statistically significant differences between the distributions of sites against a particular geo-environmental variable.

visualising the. And even when the method can hardly be blamed for lack of data or for flawed archaeological-theoretical perspectives on site location, in practice it has proved to be very difficult to deal with non-environmental variables in site location analysis, although some real progress has been made in this respect over the last decade (Whitley et al Cited by: 7.

Indeed, environmental and evolutionary approaches are now the mainstay of expanding biological and evolutionary sciences while the concept of structure and functions remains fundamental to biology. Human geographers have taken up the approaches using archaeological and social anthropological data (Diamond ).

Hello forum community, I am a graduate student charged with the task of exploring the potentiality of predicting archaeological "site" or more accurately artifact location based off of an existing archaeological site database as my thesis exercise.
