LUCIFS - Land Use and Climate Impacts on Fluvial Systems
Under PAGES Focus 4, LUCIFS applied a strong focus on a whole-catchment, systems-based understanding and analysis of the relationship between the external drivers of land use and climate change, and the internal working of multi-component catchments on timescales that encompass the period of agriculture. Anticipating change in fluxes of materials in river catchments as a consequence of global change requires this understanding.
From 2012-13 onwards the activites of the LUCIFS Working Group were merged into the Focus 4 themes: Land Use and Cover, Regional Integration, Soil and Sediment, Water, and Biodiversity.
