Modelled arable area for Great Britain under different climate and policy scenarios

The dataset contains model output from an agricultural land use model at kilometre scale resolution over Great Britain (GB) for four different climate and policy scenarios. Specifically, arable area is modelled for with or without a climate tipping point (standard (medium emissions scenario SRES-A1B) climate change vs Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) collapse) and with or without widespread irrigation use for farmers from 2000 to 2089.

Provenance & quality

The agricultural model outputs have been produced using the approach at the heart of the UK National Ecosystem Assessment and UK NEA Follow-On studies. The data is produced on a 2km grid square (400 hectares) over Great Britain. The land use data are derived from the June Agricultural Census panel (www.edina.ac.uk) collected on a 2km grid square basis over the entirety of GB for ten unevenly spaced years from 1972 to 2010. The approach and input data has been widely peer reviewed and discussed.
