Land use patterns and assessment results for selected scenarios. (a) NRP-1, change of areas with low nitrogen retention potential toward Cerrado; (b) D-1, change of areas close to surface waters (irrespective of their current land use) toward Cerrado; (c) DCC-4, change of degraded Cerrado and Cerrado to arable land (general, no-till) toward irrigated land; (d) C-1, change of areas with low potential for nitrogen retention, runoff retention, sediment retention, and production potential. Resulting spider charts display scenario results (black line) and results of the initial pattern (BAU, dotted line). The different colors in the maps represent the individual land use classes (see legend below). (For interpretation of the references to color in this figure legend, the reader is referred to the web version of the article).
