Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (Cesu) Colorado Plateau Cesu: The major goals of the Grand Canyon archaeological site assessment project are to assess the geomorphic characteristics of archaeological sites in terms of geomorphic and climatic parameters that influence or have the potential to influence rates of erosion and other agents of deterioration and affect the present or future integrity of archaeological sites in the Colorado River corridor. A secondary goal is to evaluate the effectiveness of erosion control measures in slowing rates of site deterioration over time. This data will be used in conjunction with archaeological information being collected by the National Park Service to categorize sites into groups for subsequent long term monitoring of archaeological resource condition. This project will be accomplished with a combination of field data collection and detailed topographic mapping. The main objectives are to design and implement geomorphic assessment tools necessary for development of a scientifically defensible monitoring program through implementation of the following tasks: 1) conducting the field assessments, involving two multi-week field trips in FY07. Geomorphologists will be responsible for documenting the geomorphic attributes and processes at approximately 220 archaeological sites distributed along the length of the Colorado River corridor using assessment protocols mutually agreed upon by GCMRC and the applicant. This portion of the project will constitute ~75% of total field work. 2) conducting focused empirical research at six sites during the two FY07 research trips, using repeated high resolution total station and/or ground based LiDAR surveys in conjunction with detailed measurements of physical properties to track changes in site topography, quantify rates of change, assess the effectiveness of treatment control measures, and evaluate the utility of these methods as long term monitoring protocols. (A first year of such work is being conducted under the auspices of an existing agreement with Bureau of Reclamation). Quantitative assessment of field sites will constitute ~25% of total work. 3) compiling the site-by-site geomorphic assessment data in an MS Access database for transfer by GCMRC staff into their Oracle database; 4) preparing draft and final reports.
