Adaptation of Mediterranean EcoNOmies of Past to Hydroclimatic changeS (AMENOPHYS)

The AMENOPHYS (Adaptation of Mediterranean Economies of the Past to Hydroclimatic Changes) Project investigates human-environment interactions in the Mediterranean past, using agent-based modeling to examine the limits of cultural adaptability in dynamic environments. Drawing together interdisciplinary contributions to the modeling of climate, agroecosystem, and social systems, it examines how major climatic shifts throughout the Holocene might have affected the inhabitants of the Mediterranean Basin, focusing particularly on identifying the key determinants of vulnerability and resilience.
