The latest issue of Global Change magazine is now available online on the IGBP website. Get a global view of regional temperature histories as the global climate has changed over the last 2000 years, in the cover feature from the PAGES 2k Consortium. The landmark temperature reconstruction also is visualised in a two-page spread that highlights individual continental shifts over time.
Read more on how humans have used the planet across the Anthropocene, perhaps much longer than previously thought. Dig down into the details of the rise and collapse of the Maya, and how modelling might show modern societies the pitfalls and possible solutions to growth. And consider the big picture for Earth-system science with the next incarnation of AIMES, ocean governance challenges, what soils have to say about heat waves, and interdisciplinary research. Also catch a preview of the summary for policymakers on ocean acidification in a two-page infographic illustrating the main areas of predicted change.
