Dynamic Simulation of Land-Use Change Trajectories with the Clue-S Model
- 3.5k Downloads
The CLUE(Conversion of Land Use and its Effects) model is one of the most widely applied models with approximately 30 applications in different regions of the globe focusing on a wide range of land-use change trajectories including agricultural intensification, deforestation, land abandonment and urbanisation. The model is a tool to better understand the processes that determine changes in the spatial pattern of land use and to explore possible future changes in land use at the regional scale. This chapter describes the functioning of the model and illustrates the potential of the model for scenario-based simulation of land-use change trajectories with two case studies, one which is a rural landscape in the eastern part of the Netherlands and one which is a strongly urbanized watershed surrounding Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
