Elementa: Science of the #Anthropocene goes live with new journal

A new open-access journal has been launched, Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene. The site is now up, and live. Here is a blurb and video from the home page, more can be explored here regarding the journals aims and scope, author instructions, and so forth.

Open Science for Public Good

Publishing original research reporting on new knowledge of the Earth’s physical, chemical, and biological systems; interactions between human and natural systems; and steps that can be taken to mitigate and adapt to global change, Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene will report on fundamental advancements in research organized initially into six knowledge domains, embracing the concept that basic knowledge can foster sustainable solutions for society. Elementa is published on an open-access, public-good basis—available freely and immediately to the world.


Interactive Pipeline Maps: Liquids, Natural Gas + Proposed LNG Plants

I’ve posted a couple of quick maps I made below (click to enlarge them), but you can select for several variables for each of natural gas or liquids (i.e. by company, proposed, under construction, existing).
