Environment Research (Investigation Type)

These are studies that examine aspects of the present or past natural environment to provide a context, often off-site, for interpreting archaeological resources. Sometimes reported in stand-alone volumes representing significant research, such investigations may include geomorphological, paleontological, or palynological work.
