Chin editor of new journal focusing on human interactions with earth systems

Anne Chin, professor in geography and environmental science, will serve as the inaugural Editor-in-Chief of the journal Anthropocene.  At the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America (GSA) in Charlotte, NC, last week the new journal was launched by Elsevier. It will focus attention on human interactions with Earth systems and will publish peer-reviewed works addressing the scale and extent of the influence that people have on Earth, including the effects of human activities on landscapes, oceans, the atmosphere, cryosphere, and ecosystems over a range of time and space scales.  “Anthropocene responds to increasing scientific recognition that humans have become the dominant agent of change at Earth’s surface,” Chin says. The journal launch occurred in conjunction with the Technical Session “Geomorphology of the Anthropocene,” co-organized by Chin. You can read the GSA Press Release here.
