The effects of temporal coarse-graining on inferred networks of human movement (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Tim Kohler. Stefani Crabtree. R. Kyle Bocinsky.

Analyses using tree-ring dates provide an attractive test-bed for examining effects of temporal coarse-graining in archaeological contexts, due to the high-resolution of dendrochronology. After compiling a database of every known tree-ring date in the U.S. Southwest, we use tree-ring-date counts and locations as proxies for gridded human population estimates in the upland portions of the SW US. Grid-squares that lose dates are connected to nearby grid squares that gain dates as we move from one...
