Summary

By integrating archaeological data, paleoecological data and dynamic modeling, PEOPLE 3000 aims to explain long-term patterns of growth in the consumption of energy in social-ecological systems and the tipping points of these systems within the contexts of changing climates and environments over the last 3000 years.

Goals

- Developing high-precision records of paleoclimate, human population and energy consumption over the last 3000 years.
- Comparing changes in population, energy consumption and social complexity from region to region.
- Identifying regionally comparative patterns in order to explain relationships between variation in ecosystem change, subsistence and social diversity, and the severity of social-ecological reorganization.
