Integrated Climate and Land-Use Scenarios

EPA’s Integrated Climate and Land-Use Scenarios (ICLUS) project explores future changes in human population, housing density, and impervious surface for the United States. These projections are broadly consistent with peer-reviewed storylines of population growth and economic development that are now widely used by the climate change impacts community. Articles, reports and map-based tools are available to help visualize and understand these potential changes.
