research overview

  • Dr. Lee researches the human ecology and landscape archaeology of alpine and high latitude environments with an emphasis on sharing the process and results with numerous audiences, including the professional scientific community, descendant Native American communities, and the lay-public. His research enhances our understanding of high elevation hunter-gatherer land use and is conducive to the multidisciplinary and environmental approaches that are a hallmark of INSTAAR. INSTAAR has become a recognized leader in the emerging field of “Ice Patch Archaeology.” Dr. Lee has been consulted by numerous land managing agencies in the Rocky Mountain region, as well as the National Park Service in Washington, DC regarding the impacts of climate change on heritage resources.
