Two PRIMAP studies in press: Representative Concentration Pathways and our description of the PRIMAP Emission module

Two new studies are in press and already accessible online with PRIMAP people in the lead:

(1) PRIMAP Emission Module: This publication is a description of the PRIMAP Emission module, which is intensely used by us for quantitiative assessment of international climate policy:

Nabel, J., J. Rogelj, C. M. Chen, K. Markmann, D. J. Gutzmann and M. Meinshausen (accepted). "Decision support for international climate policy - the PRIMAP emission module." Environmental Modelling and Software, available online here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1364815211001873


(2) RCP GHG concentrations and extensions: This publication describes how we created the GHG concentrations for the new set of Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP), which is the new authorative set of benchmarks for climate change research:

Meinshausen, M., S. J. Smith, K. V. Calvin, J. S. Daniel, M. L. T. Kainuma, J.-F. Lamarque, K. Matsumoto, S. A. Montzka, S. C. B. Raper, K. Riahi, A. M. Thomson, G. J. M. Velders and D. van Vuuren (accepted). "The RCP Greenhouse Gas Concentrations and their Extension from 1765 to 2300." Climatic Change(Special Issue), available online first here: http://www.springerlink.com/content/96n71712n613752g/
