(Lessons in anthropogenic impact: a knowledge network of geological signals to unite and assess global evidence of the Anthropocene)


 Present and future Geology – the global scale evidence of the Anthropocene



The Anthropocene establishes a powerful concept associated with unprecedented global change. Both recognizing and managing this novel situation in a sustainable way requires a planetary network and accompanying knowledge framework.

Here we propose to engage new ideas and networks in the development of the Anthropocene concept by cooperating globally with scientists, especially those in developing and less developed countries. The core aims are to unite and assess global evidence of the Anthropocene and to establish the Anthropocene as a fertile framework for future geosciences.
