Archaeologists Are Making a Push to Improve Climate Modeling (but don’t tell pastoralists that they are ‘hurting animals’ 😉). ⁦@LandUse_LC6k⁩ ⁦@PAGES_IPO⁩ ⁦@m4bcn⁩ ⁦@Fossilbeetle⁩ ⁦@achiii⁩ ⁦@DrJenniferBates⁩ ⁦

As promised - the @PlosOne article on global #landuse classification systems and their use in #climatemodelling for past, present and future #climatechange is out! 🥂And it's #openaccess 🎉 @PAGES_IPO @LandUse_LC6k

Our big @PLOSONE paper on global land use classification is coming out soon! Find out about it here:! The paper looks at #climatemodelling and #landcover and how #archaeology can help use think about current & future #climatechange. Link to follow soon!

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.
