Great news! Dr. Sophie Plassin has been selected to participate in SESYNC’s Early-Career Workshop, “Socio-Environmental Approaches to Watershed Management and Governance.” More information about the workshop is available here.
Processes driving land change have impacts on and create feedbacks between natural and human systems. The modelling approaches used to represent these processes and subsequent land change are varied and comprise different spatial and temporal resolutions and extents. We see a continued development of land change models for specific local case studies, but an increasing number of models quantify change and feedbacks at regional, national, and continental extents. While global land change data are regularly used to drive global process models (e.g., climate), there are fewer land change models operating at this scale.
This Special Issue welcomes articles that present new approaches to spatially explicit modelling of land change, highlight novel contributions to land change modelling using historical approaches, compare and contrast different modelling approaches, and make other unique contributions to land change and land systems modelling, such as frameworks, methodologies, and model coupling approaches. Those intending to submit should consider including data, model code (via common repositories such as GitHub), and appendices to facilitate replication, reuse, and expansion upon their submitted work by others.
