During the last millenia the former marine embayment of the Latmian Gulf has been silted up by the progradation of the Büyük Menderes delta. Long-term human impact together with an ecologically unstable natural environment in the Mediterranean has led to strong erosion in the hinterland resulting in the delta progradation and the gradual infill of the embayment. The result of this is that ancient seaports have become landlocked and their harbours useless. This has led to the decline and final desertion of the settlements. The thesis investigates these processes of settlement history and landscape evolution. - (IFL)
