2009: (with E. Ernenwein). The palaeo-environmental contexts of three possible Phoenician anchorages in Portugal.  In Wachsmann, Shelley, Richard K. Dunn, John R. Hale, Robert L. Hohlfelder, Lawrence B. Conyers, Eileen G. Ernenwein, Payson Sheets, Maria Luisa Pienheiro Blot, Filipe Castro and Dan Davis, The International Journal of Nautical ArchaeologyDOI: 10.1111/j.1095-9270.2009.00224.x. This paper is published on-line by Wiley-Blackwell.  I have edited it so that the pdf file attached here includes only the geological context by Rick Dunn and the geophysical analysis by me and Eileen Ernenwein, as it relates to the ancient harbors.  I know this makes it kind of funky, but the paper as a whole has SO MANY authors and includes so much other information that I wanted to abbreviate it here.  click here for the pdf file
