ECS Subsections

Phase 4 models will be developed for Ecological Classification System Subsections. Modeling priority is based on several factors:

  • Need to improve the Phase 3 model.
  • Availability of sufficient new environmental data to support model improvement.
  • Availability of a sufficiently large archaeological database to support model improvement.
