Multi-Image Photogrammetry for Long-Term Site Monitoring: A Study of Two Submerged F8F Bearcats (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Hunter W Whitehead.

Underwater aviation resources in the Gulf of Mexico near Pensacola, Florida are numerous due to a longstanding presence of the U.S. Navy’s first Naval Air Station. Throughout the years, training aircraft were lost at sea during periods of both conflict and of peace. The F8F Bearcat, a carrier-based fighter aircraft, was introduced too late to participate in World War II, but was used at NAS Pensacola as a carrier qualification trainer. This paper presents steps taken to utilize and test...

Vanishing River Volume 4: Chapter 07: Two Archival Case Studies in Western Apache and Yavapai Archaeology (1997)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Alan Ferg. Norm Tessman.

Chapter 7 documents two previously unpublished events that have figured prominently in Yavapai and Western Apache archaeology in central Arizona. First, Ferg details the Goodwin and Sayles 1937 Verde Survey. He argues that this three-day trip into the Verde Valley in the fall of 1937 marks the beginnings of ethnoarchaeological studies of the Western Apache. He provides thorough descriptions of all the sites located during the survey in an effort to differentiate Yavapai and Western Apache...


Vanishing River Volume 4: Chapter 08: Euroamerican History, 1540 to the Present (1997)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Stephanie M. Whittlesey. Terresita Majewski. John R. Welch. Matthew C. Bischoff. Richard Ciolek-Torrello.

The authors focus on broad trends in politics, economics, and the environment that contributed to changes in land-use patterns. They center their discussion on Euro-American populations, but also consider indigenous populations living on reservations. Furthermore, the authors examine patterns in the relations between...


Vanishing River Volume 4: Chapter 17: The Lower Verde Archaeological Project, Big Projects, and Cultural Resource Management (1997)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Jeffrey H. Altschul.

Chapter 17 highlights the full scope of the LVAP as a big project and places it in the context of other big archaeological projects. Altschul begins with historical sketches over other large archaeological projects, ranging from WPA efforts to the River Basin Surveys to large NSF-funded research. He then provides a history of the LVAP to illustrate how a large CRM-based project is conducted. He concludes with a discussion of four components that he defines as critical to the ultimate success of...

She focuses on the following units: territorial boundaries, agricultural landscapes, procurement spaces, dwelling...
