Java Climate Model - Introduction

Climate change is influenced by complex interlinked processes. This interactive model lets you explore the system and how we can change it, simply by adjusting parameters with your mouse and observing the effect instantly on diverse plots ranging from socioeconomic drivers to climate impacts. The core science calculation methods were (some years ago ! - see issues for new version ) calibrated to be consistent with results from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, implemented efficiently in the java language, to enable anybody to access this tool via the internet and explore diverse scenarios and the sensitivity of projections to risk/value judgements and scientific uncertainties.
