This site is the homepage of the Modeling the Stratigraphy, Geoarcheology, and Aggregate Resources of English Valley Systems project. The main objectives of the project are (a) to explain the origins of observed geomorphic change (e.g., episodic alluviation in valley systems) and in particular explore potential impacts of hillslope land-clearance on alluviation and flood frequency in valleys; to examine the implications of such change for erosion, burial, and visibility of archaeological remains; and to take advantage of the modeling technology to communicate the dynamics of alluvial geomorphology by producing an animated sequence showing erosion, alluviation, and river channel change over time. This site has links to the project design, animations, an image gallery, posters presented at professional meetings and a final project report.
