List of Experiments
Case 1:present GHG and LULC
Case 2:future (2040) GHG, present LULC
Case 3:present GHG, future LULC
     (changes based only on demographic/technological/socioeconomic factors)
Case 4:future GHG and LULC

(2 1): effect of GHG change alone
(3 1): effect of LULC change alone
(4 + 1 2 3): synergistic effect of GHG and LULC together

Case 5: as with case 1, but LTM gives present LULC
     based on climate of case 1
     (first coupling experiment)
Case 6:future GHG; LULC based on future non-climate factors
     but climate from case 5
Case 7:future GHG; LULC based on future factors
     including climate from case 6
     (complete coupling)

(6 5): influence of GHG plus non-climate-related LULC change
(7 6): influence of feedback of climate-influenced LULC change
(7 6)/(6 5): feedback ratio
