Human land-use activities have resulted in large changes to the Earth surface, with resulting implications for climate, carbon cycling, and society. In the future, land-use activities are likely to expand and intensify further to meet growing Human land-use activities have resulted in large changes to the Earth surface, with resulting implications for climate, carbon cycling, and society. In the future, land-use activities are likely to expand and intensify further to meet growing demands for food, fiber, and energy. The Land Use Model Intercomparison Project (LUMIP) of CMIP6 aims to further advance understanding of the impacts of land-use and land-cover change (LULCC) on climate, specifically addressing the questions: (1) What are the effects of LULCC on climate and biogeochemical cycling (past-future)? (2) What are the impacts of land management on surface fluxes of carbon, water, and energy and are there regional land-management strategies with promise to help mitigate against climate change?
