NCAR WORKSHOP TALK FEATURING CMP

SAMSI Undergraduate Workshop on 'Statistics and Climate Models' given by Cari Kaufman uses a great deal of material from "The Primer' -- download the Powerpoint version from http://www.ncsu.edu/crsc/events/ugw07/Presentations/Kaufman/Kaufman_SAMS...

PENN STATE UNIVERSITY ZERO D MODELS

Building on the Primer's Zero-D EBM and also the one at NYU (Maths) this site offers an interactive version -- this is cool to manipulate.

CREATING CLIMATE MODEL (& COOKING) RULES

Kendal and I relate climate modelling to cooking in the fourth edition of 'The Primer' (out March 2014). Last year we discussed five analogies illustrating that climate modelling and cooking are creative, complicated, valuable and great fun!

PRIMER IN PERSIAN

A Climate Modelling Primer has also appeared in other languages. The first edition can be found in Persian and in Spanish.

ZERO-D EBM


ZeroD EBM: One method of investigating the effects of changing solar output on the Earth's climate system is to use a globally averaged (zero dimensional) Energy Balance Model (EBM- extends Primer models). (University of Southampton, Jochem Marotzke)

JAVA CLIMATE MODELS

Four Java models: Daisyworld, EBM, land-surface, and ocean box model. This site is developed for use by educators and the general public. The programs are written in Java based on the BASIC programs in McGuffie and Henderson-Sellers (1997).

DAISYWORLD

Daisyworld: The key aspect of Daisyworld is that the two types of daisies have different colors and thus different albedos. In this way, the daisies can alter the temperature of the surface where they are growing. (PennState University, Dave Bice)

ZERO-D EBM

ZeroD EBM: The overall goal of this exercise is to make predictions about the global temperature of the Earth.
