The CLIMA project aimed at promoting highly interdisciplinary soil-oriented research to develop an effective tool for the authorities in charge of landscape preservation.
|The CLIMA project aimed at promoting highly interdisciplinary soil-oriented research to develop an effective tool for the authorities in charge of landscape preservation.
The main aim of the project was to lead to significant advances in our understanding of archaeological cultural landscapes across the broader research community, the public authorities and in society. Changes in the landscapes have been analysed by addressing different climatic and environmental conditions in Europe.
The project has addressed the design and development of a multi-task platform, combining advanced remote sensing technologies, both from satellite and ground-based, with GIS application for mapping and long-term monitoring of archaeological cultural landscapes to identify changes due to climate changes and anthropic pressures. It has also targeted the development and test of an innovative ground-based gamma spectrometer to measure soil vertical/lateral disturbance.
This project was funded by The Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage (JPI CH) within the framework of the Heritage Plus Joint Call and the European Commission.
