Online Climate Model now released: MAGICC6
This is to announce a new online resource: The MAGICC6 climate model. You will be able to select or upload your own emission scenario, calculate greenhouse gas concentrations, radiative forcing and global-mean/hemispheric temperatures online.
Aside from being a great educational resource for schools, university classes and projects, MAGICC is used in high-profile research and policy reports for more than twenty years:
a) The WRE pathways in the 1990s. (http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/379240a0)
b) Multiple IPCC reports, including related high-profile publications (http://dx.doi.org/10.1126/science.1061604)
c) The new GHG concentrations of the RCP (Representative Concentration Pathways) (http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10584-011-0156-z).
d) The UNEP GAP report, which analyzes the 2C compatibility of a large number of emission scenarios (http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nclimate1258)
e) Publications related to the burnable carbon, the cumulative carbon emissions that are required to stay below 2C (http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nature08017)
f) and many more (see e.g. here: http://wiki.magicc.org/index.php?title=MAGICC_projects).
