Land use and land cover change play an important role in the climate change issue both as a driver of climate change and as a component of response options including mitigation and adaption. Land as an input to production is currently being added to the iPETS integrated assessment model at NCAR, and this technical note provides an overview of the data involved in modeling land use within that framework. It includes a discussion of land use data included in the GTAP dataset in both physical and economic terms, its use in iPETS, and how iPETS could link with terrestrial system models such as the Community Land Model (CLM).
