|Abstract||The geoarchaeological research of ancient harbours enables the study of relations between societies living by harbours and those of coastal environments. Research into harbour archaeology is still limited for several reasons. First of all, these studies are oriented more towards analysis of the great harbour cities rather than their harbour complexes. Secondly, the proximity of the body of seawater makes operations for pumping the water table difficult. Finally, often only the -harbour structures have attracted the interest of researchers at the expense of the associated marine stratigraphic units. A harbour basin is defined by three elements: a container (the structures: moles, wharves, posts...), a content (composed of accumulated sediments and a column of water above) and a water surface upon which ships circulate (sea level). Our approach takes these three elements into account and studies three types of problems. The question Where? deals with locating the harbours, whether immerged or buried beneath the sediments. The question When? enables definition of the chronological terms. The dates of foundation and abandonment are defined as well as the duration of the time that the harbour was functional. The question How? takes on the theme of the natural mobility of the coastal landscapes and the impacts of anthropization related to the emergence and development of harbour societies.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
