Simple Carbon-Climate Model (SCCM v7b)
This collection comprises source code, control files and sufficient input data files as required to run the Simple Carbon-Climate Model (SCCM7b), and documentation for the model. SCCM is an analytical-numerical model for the globally-averaged climate (as principally measured by the near-surface air temperature) and the atmospheric concentrations o... moref carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas species, as determined by the coupled carbon cycle and climate systems. Further detail in science and technical details is provided in the accompanying reference material. less

SCCM was developed initially by Dr Michael Raupach (Raupach et al. 2011, Tellus B, 63(2): 145-162), and translated into fortran by Dr Cathy Trudinger. Extensions to analyse the cycles of carbon isotopes, methane, nitrous oxide and several other greenhouse gases, as well as sea level rise have been added over time by Drs Cathy Trudinger and Ian Harman. Extensions to enable the efficient estimation of parameter values through two approaches (PEST and a genetic algorithm) have been added. SCCM7 was documented by Harman et al. (2014) in the accompanying documentation. A more complete list of the lineage of SCCM is provided in the header of the source code.
Dr Michael Raupach, Dr Cathy Trudinger, Dr Ian Harman and collaborators who sourced various input files.
