The Anthropocene is Functionally and Stratigraphically Distinct from the Holocene

anthropocene

Any formal recognition of an Anthropocene epoch in the geological time scale hinges on whether humans have changed the Earth system sufficiently to produce a stratigraphic signature in sediments and ice that is distinct from that of the Holocene epoch.
