Background

Land Use refers to the way land is used, while land cover refers to the actual type of vegetation present at a location. We tend to focus on land cover for the portions of the basin that are dominated by vegetation, while focusing on land use in the developed portions of the landscape. These are combined in the charts and maps below, where we use the term LULC to refer to the combination of land use and land cover.

The Data

The charts below depict projected trends in land use/land under the three climate scenarios.

Warm/Wet

Hot/Dry

Low Change

The following maps show LULC and population in the Ketchum area. The top map show LULC in 2010, while the next series show projected LULC in 2070 under our four management scenarios.
