Land cover change, such as the rapid urban expansion of Las Vegas shown above (left: 1992; right: 2013), interacts with climate change in complex ways. Scenarios can be used to understand and plan for the plausible permutations of these and other interacting processes in the Earth system. (Source: USGS Landsat)
