Project Details

Title:Palaeoanthropocene in Iceland
Abstract:This project used published and new records of vegetation change and soil erosion from all of Iceland to look at the timing, extent and rate of change in natural systems at Landnám. This dataset was used to investigate the what extent it was possible to distinguish a distinct \'anthropocene\' in Iceland, based on these records alone.
Keywords:Comparative Island Ecodynamics, anthropocene, pollen, tephra, soil erosion, Landnám
