Title: Land Use Change Science: Lessons Learned from Applications of Using the Land Transformation Model

Time: Saturday, August 29, 2015, 8:00 to 17:00
Location: Pardis Danesh Language Institute

Over a decade of model development and experiment has gone into the
model, and the Land Transformation Model (LTM) has been now applied to
simulate land use change (LUC) patterns in a variety of places around the
world, such as all lower 48 states in the USA, central Europe, East Africa and
Asia. The objective of this workshop is to review the breadth and depth of
LUC issues that are being addressed by discussing how an existing model,
Purdue’s LTM, has been used to better understand these very important
environmental issues.
