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.
It was a pleasure working with you!
Congratulations to Madison Wilson for winning 1st place in the undergraduate poster competition at OU’s GIS Day 2019. Madison, you rock!!!
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.
