Anthropogenic soils as the marker

Certini Giacomo, Scalenghe Riccardo

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This article aims to support the Anthropogenic soils, the ones markedly affected by human activities, as the most meaningful marker for the onset of the Anthropocene. Although diachronous and not uniformly distributed throughout the world, these soils in fact show more prominently and potentially longer in time than other proposed markers for the impact of humans on the Earth surface.
