Award Description: Title: Land-Use Change Modeling Studies Purpose: The purpose of the project is to improve land-use change modeling capabilities to help ensure biofuels can be produced sustainably Description: The project will Increase the scope of sustainability research in land use change forecasting and bioenergy modeling to make Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) sustainability research more readily applicable at national scale. The task will accelerate the development of a high-resolution modeling system for the comprehensive analysis of biofuel deployment in the US landscape in terms of production potential, land use competition, and environmental impacts. PNNL, in partnership with ORNL, and the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC), is advancing computational and modeling capabilities to assess production and environmental impacts of biomass crops. This research is being conducted to ensure that the biomass can be produced in a sustainable manner. This award is for the work to be performed by PNNL and GLBRC. PNNL is conducting land-use modeling studies utilizing the resources of its Joint Global Climate Change Institute (JGCRI). GLBRC is conducting related studies on the environmental and sustainability aspects of biomass production. ?
