LCLUC 2015 Webinar Series

The 2015 LCLUC Webinar Series features LCLUC projects focusing on detection and monitoring of land-cover and land-use changes. These projects contribute to the revised science questions identified in the land use land cover change theme of the 2003 U.S. Climate Change Science Program Strategic Plan.
