A Critical Evaluation of Soil Salinization, Waterlogging, and Agricultural Fertility within Hohokam Irrigation of the Phoenix Basin (2021)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Christopher Caseldine. David Abbott.

This is a presentation from the 2021 Arizona Archaeological Council (AAC) Fall symposium on "The Archaeology of Canals in the Arizona Desert". In arid and semi-arid regions, soil salinization and waterlogging are thought to cause agricultural infertility and social change. Although common in irrigation models and theories, empirical evidence supporting a primary causal link among salinization, waterlogging, and infertility has proved elusive. Proxies and indirect measures (e.g., soil...

General Resources from the Long Term Vulnerability and Transformation Project
PROJECT Margaret Nelson. National Science Foundation.

Long-Term Coupled Socioecological Change in the American Southwest and Northern Mexico: Each generation transforms an inherited social and environmental world and leaves it as a legacy to succeeding generations. Long-term interactions among social and ecological processes give rise to complex dynamics on multiple temporal and spatial scales – cycles of change followed by relative stasis, followed by change. Within the cycles are understandable patterns and irreducible uncertainties; neither...
