What's New: The Scripps Center for Marine Archaeology (SCMA)/Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies/Israel Antiquities Authority Project



The new Scripps Center for Marine Archaeology (SCMA) at the University of California--San Diego received a large 3-year grant from the Koret Foundation (San Francisco) to promote a global scientific collaboration between UC San Diego's SCMA and the University of Haifa's Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies. In cooperation with the Israel Antiquities Authority, together, we are taking a deep dive using marine climate science, anthropology, oceanography and archaeology to study how societies adapted Israel's coast for the past +10,000 years. This unique collaboration between the Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies and SCMA which is co-led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Department of Anthropology at UC San Diego has the potential to advance the study of climate and environmental science by utilizing the rich archeology of the eastern Mediterranean. Israel's Carmel Coast provides an exceptional case study for investigating these problems because of its rich submerged cultural heritage.
