Greater Mesopotamia: Reconstruction of its Environment and History

Our aim is to contribute to a comprehensive study of depositional sedimentary environments, their evolution and the human interaction within the region. Regarding the latter topic it is our aim to detect how settlement patterns changed in relation to changing sea-level, shoreline displacements and to changing watercourses.
