Need and Options for Subnational Scale Land-Use and Land-Cover Scenarios for the United States

This report summarizes discussions from a workshop of users and producers of land-use and land-cover (LULC) scenarios, convened by USGCRP's Scenarios and Interpretive Science Coordinating Group on June 25-27, 2014. The report focuses on needs, resources/capabilities, and barriers/opportunities for producing national-scale, regionally differentiated, and spatially explicit LULC scenarios for the United States. It describes options for agency and interagency activities that would advance this research but makes no recommendations.
