Oceanic islands are often regarded as key early indicators or microcosms of the impacts of global heating, 但它们也受到更广泛的人类影响, 包括引入入侵物种, 加速土壤侵蚀, 和污染. 这加速了人类的影响, particularly from the 1950s during the “Great Acceleration” of global anthropogenic impacts (the beginning of the proposed Anthropocene epoch), is overprinted however on centuries of earlier human impact and natural environmental change [1]. 当地的沉积系统记录了这些形态变化的证据, 沉积物, 化学和化石, 它们是长期和近期人类影响和环境变化的重要档案. This project will examine the use of recent sedimentary deposits from around the Hawaiian archipelago in identifying the putative Anthropocene, 并将其与早期沉积物区分开来, 地球化学和生物变异. 实际上, it will identify whether there is a clear trajectory in the sedimentary record that shows that envelopes of Holocene variability have been left behind, and assess the implications of this for future environmental management in the Hawaiian archipelago and similar island systems.
