A Refinement of Rice and Plog's Method of Estimating Areas Sampled by Trenches (1987)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Keith Kintigh.

Rice and Plog present a persuasive argument for the use of mechanical trenching as a sampling strategy for the identification of features that have little or no surface visibility. I suggest a refinement of their argument and formulae for the estimated sampled area (ESA) that allows for the explicit treatment of a broader class of problems.
