Water, Life and Civilisation

PI: Emily Black
Institution: University of Reading
The overall aim of Water, Life and Civilisation is to assess how the changes in hydrological climate have impacted human activities in the past, present and future within the semi-arid regions of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

The project will have five component parts consisting of two models, one for climate and one for hydrology, and studies concerning palaeoenvironments, the history of human settlement, and the current and future patterns of land use. In essence, the combined climate and hydrological models will provide predictions for the water cycle and river system for several key study dates. The predictions will be evaluated using palaeoenvironmental and archaeological data. The consequences for human activity will be assessed by the developmental geography studies drawing on the present character and forces of economic and social change.
