Anthropocene Working Group. A Scientific Forum

A three-day forum on the findings of the twelve research sites from which the Anthropocene Working Group (AWG) will nominate their candidate Global Stratotype Section and Point (GSSP) to define the start of the geological Anthropocene.

During the program Unearthing the Present, the AWG and its associated research groups invite the public to attend as observers the AWG’s internal meeting and to witness a milestone in the process of defining the geological Anthropocene. On May 18 and 19, the research teams will present findings from twelve sites and discuss the results with fellow AWG researchers; on May 20, in an open forum, the public will be given the unique opportunity to ask questions and enter into discussion with members of the AWG and the scientific teams.
