Like inhabited deltas worldwide, California’s Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta has been intensively and irreversibly transformed by certain human activities. This case study joins research from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta with global discussions about Anthropocene landscapes in general and Anthropocene Deltas in particular, which we understand to be both shaped by people and shaping people. Through engaging with this case study, we expect readers to be able to think about how an evolving Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta exemplifies an Anthropocene landscape and engage with the implications of a pivot away from economic growth and toward sufficiency as a central management objective.
