SoA professors Takeshi Inomata and Daniela Triadan, and Ph.D. student Melissa Burham, along with their Guatemalan and Japanese colleagues, published an article on their analysis of lidar data on the Maya site of Ceibal, Guatemala. The paper, “Archaeological application of airborne LiDAR to examine social changes in the Ceibal region of the Maya lowlands” appeared on the PLOS ONE site. The results of the airborne laser survey provided significant data on the spread of ceremonial centers and settlements through time. The team’s research was covered by UANews, the Arizona Daily Star, and KGUN9.
