Offline version of the GCAM land allocation module
gcamland replicates the land allocation decisions made in GCAM (https:://github.com/jgcri/gcam-core). The equations are documented in Wise et al. (2014).
gcamland takes in prices and agricultural productivity growth and calculates land allocation. The model can operate in either hindcast (1975-2010) or future mode (2010-2100), running either single simulations or large ensembles.
