A workshop on land use classification PAGES Working Group — LandCover6k Meeting Schedule  |  Conference Program How can evidence from history, archaeology, and historical geography inform global climate models? Historical data are used in modeling present and future climate, but these reconstructions are based not on the vast repository of historical scholarship, but on other models. Until now, historical scholars have not had the opportunity to contribute directly to climate change science even though evidence for human land use, from foraging…

Land Use and Land Cover Change Over Holocene Timescales

April 17, 2016 @ 8:00 am - April 22, 2016 @ 5:00 pm UTC+1
Austria Center Vienna,
Vienna , Austria
+ Google Map

This session aims to draw together researchers focused on different approaches to reconstructing long-term human modification of landscapes. This includes methods employed to reconstruct land cover, vegetation, and land use change, such as pollen analysis and modelling techniques, approaches to understand past demographic change, cultural and societal shifts, and the consequences of human impacts on biogeochemical cycles.
