    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperAcademic


    Possible future land use in the Rhine Basin is presented, both as a result of technical, economic, political and demographic developments and in view of changing climatic conditions caused by the greenhouse effect. For the decade 2040-2049 land use projections were made under both unchanged and changed climatic conditions. For both cases, land use was calculated for a so-called Central Projection and for two variants, one with minimum urban and agricultural claims on land and one with maximum claims.These projections were based on fundamental scientific and technical principles, secular historical trends, basic assumptions, and other long-term surveys of the future.
