Description: Gigalopolis is the growing urban structure containing billions of people
worldwide. Urban settlements and their connectivity will be the dominant driver
of global change during the twenty-first century. Intensely impacting land,
atmospheric, and hydrologic resources, urban dynamics has now surpassed the
regional scale of megaloplolis and must now be considered as a continental and
global scale phenomenon. Project Gigalopolis extends and refines the Clarke
urban growth model enabling predictions at regional, continental and eventually
global scales.
