DOCUMENT Full-Text Alfred E. Dittert, Jr.. Paul R. Fish. Don E. Simonis.

One of several construction programs proposed for inclusion in the Central Arizona Project was a system of aqueducts to link Parker Dam on the Colorado River in western Arizona and the Charleston Damsite on the San Pedro River in southeastern Arizona. Since the possibility existed that archaeological remains might be destroyed by necessary subjugation of lands for the aqueduct, the Southwest Archaeological Center of the National Park Service, U. S. Department of the Interior, made arrangements...

From Fire to Flood: Historic Human Destruction of Sonoran Desert Riverine Oases (1981)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Henry F. Dobyns.

This book has been written intentionally to attempt to correct the disnoetic behavior of scientists who previously analyzed historic erosion and related changes in the Sonoran Desert environment. For scientists, no less than historians, have been quite unduly disnoetic; that is, all too many have proved to be incapable of knowing what they see (Morgan 1966:31). The chapters which follow this introduction deal with such variables as those already briefly mentioned, plus a number of others. Each...

The Museum of Northern Arizona developed a location analysis research design for Phase II archaeological investigations of the proposed transmission line corridor route for the Arizona Station Project. Through coupling this research design with a survey of sample archaeological units in the corridor areas, a projection of archaeological sensitivity was generated. This projection was based on a categorization of the total study areas in terms of environmental sensitivity to each. Variable for...


Vertebrate and Invertebrate Paleontological Remains: San Rafael Ranch State Park, Arizona State Parks (2001)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Jim I. Mead. Harold D. Dyer.

Arizona State Parks (ASP) required the assessment of bones found exposed along the arroyo cut of the San Pedro River in San Rafael Valley, Santa Cruz County, southeastern Arizona.
