Mediterranean California’s water use future based on scenarios of land use change 1992-2062

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

This dataset contains csv files in support of the conclusions published in "Water use demand in Mediterranean California under multiple scenarios of developed and agricultural land use " in the journal PLOS One. We used the USGS's LUCAS model to examine a broad suite of spatially explicit future land use scenarios and their associated county-level water use demand, including the historical (1992-2011) and projected periods (2012-2062) across 40 Monte Carlo simulations.We examined a range of potential water demand futures sampled from a 20-year record of historical (1992-2012) data to develop a suite of potential future land change scenarios from 2012-2062. These scenario simulations include a 1) business-as-usual (BAU), 2) low agriculture (LA), 3) high agriculture (HU), 4) low urban (LU), 5) high urban (HU), 6) lowest of the low (LL), and 7) highest of the high (HH) anthropogenic use scenarios.
