Welcome to the Land-Cover and Land-Use Change Modeling Methods Project

    Land-cover and land-use change modeling is an important tool to make educated decisions pertaining to the future of an area. Research in modeling methods and their validation is important as the quest for more accurate methods continues. Research in Land-cover and land-use change modeling methods at Clark University's Graduate School of Geography seeks to add to existing knowledge to this field.


This research is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Jesse B. Cox Charitable Trust, The Sweetwater Trust, George Perkins Marsh Institute of Clark University and Human Dimensions of Global Change Program of Carnegie Mellon University with whom this work is becoming increasingly integrated. Most of this research has the endorsement of the Scientific Steering Committee and the International Project Office of LUCC, in connection with the IGBP & IHDP.
