Integrated Climate and Land-Use Scenarios

[NOTICE] EPA is announcing the availability of the draft report, Updates to the Demographic and Spatial Allocation Models to Produce Integrated Climate and Land Use Scenarios (ICLUS) (Version 2.0) for a 30-day public comment and review period. [Federal Register Notice April 29, 2016]

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.
