Telecoupling

In this blog post, the authors introduce two new models, the TeleABM and the FLUTE, that are designed to study telecoupled land-use change but using different modelling approaches. Both models use soybean, one of the most traded commodities in the world, as an exemplary case to illustrate the ways in which they tackle the challenges of cross-scalar dynamics. The post reports on a joint webinar hosted by the GLP Working Group on Telecoupling Research held in September 2020 and featuring presentations by the three first authors.

This post summarizes the insights from the GLP Telecoupling Working Group's second webinar, which featured featuring working group member Sébastien Boillat and COUPLED PhD students Joel Persson and Siyu Qin. The post also discusses the importance of looking at conservation through a telecoupling lens.
