What will IHOPE do?

An integrated history from IHOPE will provide a rich picture of how (and why) the planet and human societies have changed in historical times. [It will] unravel Earth system changes through analysis of the coupled human-environmental system to understand…the importance of environmental dynamics on the evolution of society, and …how ….human activities contribute to the observed changes in Earth system dynamics.
