ESEX Commentary - The Anthropocene: is there a geomorphological case? - FREE ONLINE
The ‘Anthropocene’, as used to describe the interval of recent Earth history during which humans have had an ‘overwhelming’ effect on the Earth system, is now being formally considered as a possible new geological Epoch. Such a new geological time interval (possibly equivalent to the Pleistocene Epoch) requires both theoretical justification as well as empirical evidence preserved within the geological record. Since the geological record is driven by geomorphological processes that produce terrestrial and near-shore stratigraphy, geomorphology has to be an integral part of this consideration. For this reason, the British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) has inaugurated a Fixed Term Working Group to consider this issue and advise the Society on how geomorphologists can engage with debates over the Anthropocene.
Good practice in authoring manuscripts on Geomorphology
Would you like some good practice advice, written in Chinese, about writing manuscripts on Geomorphology? Professor Stuart Lane provides details in this document.
From March 2014, the newsletters of the International Association of Geomorphologists will not be printed in ESPL nor included in issues online. However, we have decided to host them on the ESPL homepage here, so please see the latest newsletter (No. 29 (4/2013)) by clicking here.

Seeking good peer review in geomorphology
Stuart N. Lane
This paper provides an extended guide to reviewing for ESPL in particular and geomorphology in general. After a brief consideration of both how we choose reviewers and why we hope that reviewers will accept, I consider what makes a fair and constructive review.
State-of-the-Science papers are now a regular feature of the first issue of the journal each calendar year. These papers not only review but also reframe and reformulate our current understanding of key geomorphological questions.
