LandCover6k people

LandCover6k (LC) and LandUse6k (LU) coordinated its work and products within two groups, a coordinating group and a core group.

The latter group ensured a regular dialogue between the coordinating group and other PAGES and external groups.

Coordinating group

Marc Vander Linden (LU global database)
Stefania Merlo (LU Africa)
ECR Jennifer Bates (LU Southern Asia)
ECR Austin "Chad" Hill (LU Global Per-Capita Land Use Estimates)
ECR Andria Dawson (LC N America-Canada)
ECR Esther Githumbi (LC-LU Africa)

LandCover6k consisted of five activities:

- Pollen-based land-cover reconstructions (Land Cover, LC).
Coordinator: Marie-Jose GaillardFurong LiEsther Githumbi and Andria Dawson

- Archaeology/History land-use reconstructions (Land Use, LU).
Coordinators: Kathy MorrisonMarco MadellaNicki Whitehouse, Emily Hammer, Oliver Boles, Marc Vander Linden and Eduardo Kazuo Tamanaha.

- Anthropogenic Land-Cover Change (ALCC, HYDE-KK) modeling.
Coordinators: Kees Klein-GoldewijkJed O. Kaplan.

- Co-design of climate model experiments with the PMIP Community (Clim).
Coordinators: Sandy HarrisonECR Kamolphat Atsawawaranunt.

- Relative pollen productivities - methods and synthese (RPP).
