The book presents recent estimates of the rates in changes of major land classes such as forest, cropland and pasture. Among the causative mechanisms behind land change, synergetic factor combinations are found to be more common than single key factor : $ In writing this book, current knowledge and understanding is reported on the rates, causes/pathways, impacts, future scenarios/models, policy implications and new research directions in the field of land-use/cover change.

Among the causative mechanisms behind land change, synergetic factor combinations are found to be more common than single key factor explanations. This book presents recent estimates on the rate of change of major land classes.

Aggregated globally, multiple impacts of local land changes are shown to significantly affect central aspects of Earth System functioning. The book offers innovative developments and applications in the fields of modeling and scenario construction.

Conclusions are also drawn about the most pressing implications.

It serves as a typical case study for a rapidly growing and developing urban center – Da Nang City, which is surrounded by remote areas.

Methodology Land use classifications are based on data published in by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service in a report called the Major Uses of Land in the United.

Therefore, land use patterns may be essential factors in determining landscape stability and should have the attention of land use planners. The simplest example of manipulating landscape stability by pattern is the contour arrangement of land parcels to prevent soil erosion.

Land-use change occurs initially at the level of individual land parcels when land managers decide that a change towards another land-use/land-utilization type is desirable. Aggregately, individual land-use decisions produce land-use/cover changes at higher spatial levels.

Land managers respond, however, mostly to internal and external. the environment a detailed classification of land use is required • To meet this need Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) released a Standard Statistical Classification of land use mixing some categories of land cover and taking into account additional economic activities like mining, industrial land, land used for public services, etc.

The changes in land use and land cover have accelerated over the last three centuries, since the onset of the Industrial Revolution. Land use is one of the most obvious and major drivers of global change. With this recognition, there have been an increased number of studies of the causes and consequences of land use and land cover change.

A ttributing land use change (e.g. deforestation) in any one location to a specific change in land use elsewhere is often extremely difficult, due to the need to analyse and track how markets respond to direct land use change in one location, and in turn, the need to explain how the decisions and actions of local people in relation to the.

Land-use and land-cover changes affect local, regional, and global climate processes. Individuals, organizations, and governments have the capacity to make land-use decisions to adapt to the effects of climate change.

Choices about land use and land management provide a means of reducing atmospheric greenhouse gas levels. For Explore your Archivewe are delighted to launch a short introductory video and blog to using the Land Index Books at the Registry of Deeds.
