Giving Form to Flow:
Modelling the Paleohydrological Context for Human
Settlement and Water Use in the North-Central Coast of Peru

Monday, April 18, 2022
1:00 p.m. EDT • Bryand Global Sciences Center Room 100


Join by Zoom:


Within coastal Andean archaeology there is a growing emphasis on the
role of hydrology and hydrological knowledge in water management
and land use strategies. Hydrological methods not only help reconstruct
past water environments but also illuminate the influence of changing
climates and conditions in the Andean highlands on coastal water flows.
Through a case study of the Supe River basin in north-central coastal
Peru, I developed a paleohydrological model that provides a basis for
comparing the hydrological effects of changing climates and other
environmental factors to settlement patterns and land use patterns.
