About Land Use

Tracking the world

The Land Use Working Group is an international and interdisciplinary research group dedicated to reconstructing human land use over the past 10,000 years. The goal of this initiative is to critically evaluate and improve models of anthropogenic land cover change used in local and global climate models. 

This work is urgently needed.  Current climate models make little use of the vast repository of evidence about human history,  an awareness that humans are one agent of global change. The complex and variable relationships between land use and land cover are still insufficiently understood.
