Statement: Global Cropland Area predictions by the GLDUM model
Abstract: An output of the Global Land Use Dynamics Model (GLUDM). Spatially explicit global estimates of cropland area between 1960-2099. Yearly time steps in individual NetCDF files.
The GLDUM is based on pixel-specific regression between historic land use changes and global population. Land use expansion and abandonment is governed by environmental and land use restrictions (e.g altitude and urbanization).
