CLIMBER family of Earth system models of intermediate complexity (EMICs). Currently there are two versions of CLIMBER models:

  • CLIMBER 2 - with a 2‐dimensional ocean for long‐term and paleoclimate simulations.
  • CLIMBER-3α - with a 3‐dimensional ocean for typical timescales of millennia.

 

Moduls:

  • POTSDAM - Statistical-Dynamical Atmospheric Model
  • VECODE - Dynamical Vegetation Model
  • MOM - Modular Ocean Model (GFDL)
  • SICOPOLIS - 3D polythermal Ice Sheet Model
