  • AGUAS project: Palaeoclimatic reconstruction and the dynamics of human settlement and land-use in the area of the middle Aguas (Almería), in the south-east of the Iberian Peninsula


The Aguas Project was designed in order to investigate the evolutionary dynamics (from 4000 BC to present day) of metastable systems and the role of human practices as a crucial factor in the desertification and degradation of the Mediterranean region. The middle Aguas and the lower Aguas were included in the analysis. The coordination team of the Aguas project was asked by the DGXII to present a synthesis of the main results of two years of research in a final report, which is the text here presented.
