We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the following session at
the IUGG General Assembly on July 8-18, 2019, in Montreal, Canada:
*JM01: Adapting in the Anthropocene*
Convener: Keith Alverson
Co-conveners: Gia Destouni, Mike Wolovick
The detection and attribution of significant human impact on the global
environment has been robustly shown across a number of Earth system
components. In this context, the concept of planetary boundaries and
tipping points has received substantial visibility. Well known examples
include greenhouse gas and aerosol levels in the atmosphere, ice sheet
collapse and sea level rise, sea ice loss, plastic and acidification in
the ocean, shifts in freshwater availability and quality, and
biodiversity loss, nutrient and toxic chemical loading in terrestrial,
freshwater and coastal ecosystems. This symposium will highlight
examples of where we are experiencing the kind of dominant human impacts
on the global environment that define the Anthropocene, with a focus on
actions that can be taken to reverse the anthropogenic forcings, reduce
their adverse impacts on natural and social systems and provide
sustainable services, including food and water security and safety, for
a growing and increasingly affluent global human population.
Note that travel grants are available for students, early career
scientists, female scientists, and attendees from less-affluent countries.
The deadline for abstract submission is February 18. The deadline for
early-bird registration is April 5.
