- Urban Land Module (34_urban)
The urban module is one of the land modules in MAgPIE (see also the other land modules: 30_crop, 31_pasture, 32_forestry, 33_forest and 35_other). It describes urban settlements areas and estimates their corresponding carbon content.
Name Description Unit A pcm_land(j,"urban",siclass) urban land of the previous time step mio. ha x vm_land(j,"urban",siclass) siclass-specific urban area in each cell mio. ha x vm_carbon_stock(j,"urban",soilc) cell and carbon pool specific carbon stock of urban area mio. tC x
The last columns of the table indicate the usage in the different realizations (numbered with capital letters)

(A) static (default)¶
In this realization urban land remains static with the spatial distribution observed in 1995:
vm\_land.fx(j,"urban",si) = pcm\_land(j,"urban",si)
Carbon contents of all these urban areas are assumed to be 0:
vm\_carbon\_stock.fx(j,"urban",c\_pools) = 0
There are currently no known limitations of this realization.
