The current version of the Climate CoLab uses a single climate model, C-LEARN.
The model's inputs are:
- Targets for greenhouse gas emission reduction
- Targets for reductions in deforestation and increases in aforestation
Its outputs are:
- Atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Increase in global mean temperature (GMT) above baseline year
This writeup about C-LEARN contains three primary sections
- C-LEARN overview
High level description of the model; information about its developers and their institutional affiliation; the model's history and how it can be accessed; documentation and key publications.
- C-LEARN attributes
The model's geographic scope and resolution; its start date, end date, and time step; its data sources; its approach for dealing with uncertainty; and its overall structure.
- C-LEARN modules
- Regional CO2 emissions
- Other greenhouse gases
- Land use
- Carbon cycle
- Sea level rise
