|Anthropocene launch at GSA 2012!
We are pleased to announce that our new journal, Anthropocene, will be launched at the Geological Society of America meeting 2012. Anthropocene‘s Editor-in-Chief, Professor Chin, is eager to lead the journal in focusing scientific attention to account explicitly for human interactions with Earth’s systems, and to meeting one of the grand challenges of our time.
About the journal
The scope of the journal Anthropocene includes the effects of human activities on landscapes, oceans, the atmosphere, cryosphere, and ecosystems over a range of time and space scales, from global phenomena over geologic eras to single isolated events. Articles could address how the human influence on Earth may produce a distinct geological record, and how these signals may compare with the great perturbations in Earth’s history. Theoretical and empirical contributions linking societal responses to human-induced landscape change are also welcomed. As humans have emerged as a dominant agent of change on Earth’s system, the journal serves to focus research findings, discussions, and debates to account explicitly for human interactions with Earth’s systems. It provides a venue toward meeting one of the grand challenges of our time.
