Certainly noting down the observations since 12,000-year-old, Holocene epoch transition into the Anthropocene, a period of drastic human-led changes which were believed to threaten the Earth’s future. Agriculture and varying carbon levels are known to be the reasons behind this. It can be considered as an implementation by the aroused industrial revolution in the early 1800s due to the drastic enhancement in the use of fossil fuels.
According to the recent grossing scientific papers, the Anthropocene could be pinned down on 16, July 1945 meant to be the day the signifying the explosion of world’s first bomb in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Certainly there is a continuous shift into the other geological epoch, in a similar way the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary is located at the moment a meteorite collided the Yucatan Peninsula which triggered, among other changes, the extinction of dinosaurs 66 million years ago.
The explosion in the Hiroshima and Nagasaki followed by the explosion in Alamogordo, August 1945 and many other bombs, combusted at the average rate of one among each 9.6 days until the year 1988 producing the markers across the globe in the form of radio nuclides, found in all continents and in polar ice on both poles. Depositions of each rock strata and their fossil contents symbolizes the Physical and chemical markers considered to be vital tools in defining epochal boundaries as the signal is believed to be changing regularly in the Earth system.
