The impact of migration on tropical deforestation: An agent-based modeling approach for Guraferda, Southwest Ethiopia

Niels Debonne, A Van Rompaey, M Vanmaercke
2015 Zenodo  
The model uses a forest map, a digital elevation model and demographic data as input, and uses this to simulate the quantity and allocation of deforestation in the study area.  ...  Agent-based modeling is a relatively recent spatial modeling technique that can be used to formally bring together qualitative and quantitative information and perform simulations under various assumptions  ...  Acknowledgements This thesis has taken the better part of the last year, and I have many people to thank for their support and contributions. Foremost, I would like to thank prof. Anton Van Rompaey.  ...

Modelling land-use and land-cover change and related environmental impacts in Northern Mongolia [article]

Christian Schweitzer, Universitäts- Und Landesbibliothek Sachsen-Anhalt, Martin-Luther Universität, Seppelt, Ralf, Prof. Dr., Cramer, Wolfgang, Prof. Dr.
One of the objectives is to measure and validate simulated forest biomass and wildfire impacts, for example to improve the quantification of rates of forest re-growth.  ...  Further, scenario assessment will include a second round of stakeholder involvement and additional scenario simulations (e.g. by using an ensemble of regional climate scenarios).  ...  SITE currently uses the concept of cellular automata (CA) models, which are defined as spatially and temporary discrete systems consisting of cells arranged in a lattice of n (>1) dimensions.  ...

2021 arXiv   pre-print
Recent decades have seen a rise in the use of physics-inspired or physics-like methods in attempts to resolve diverse societal problems.  ...  Such a rise is driven both by physicists venturing outside of their traditional domain of interest, but also by scientists from other domains who wish to mimic the enormous success of physics throughout  ...  Acknowledgements We are thankful to Sheikh Taslim  ...

Shifting cultivation dynamics within an ecosystem service hotspot of pronounced global interest – a first step towards negotiating trade-offs in North-East Madagascar [article]

Julie Gwendolin Zähringer, Cornelia Hett, Bruno Ramamonjisoa, Sandra Eckert, Peter Messerli
2014 unpublished
Ca. 60,000 km 2 of western and central Kenya were analyzed to give a 30-year perspective of land cover and land use change in the context of population growth, tenure and climate change.  ...  While it may often be possible to identify land cover change using remote sensing, the underlying causes can often only be assessed qualitatively because spatially explicit socioeconomic information is  ...  The forecasted patterns and transitions were generated using the Cellular-Automata (CA) Urban Growth Model SLEUTH.  ...
