Activities (2)

Modeling Daisyworld part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
This activity describes the Daisyworld model in conceptual terms and then describes how to construct a STELLA model of the system. Following this, a series of experiments are outlined, along with questions for students to answer.

Modeling the oceanic thermohaline circulation with STELLA part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
This activity describes the construction of and then experimentation with a STELLA model of the thermohaline circulation in the north Atlantic. Based on a famous paper by Stommel (1961), this model exhibits two stable states or attractors. The dynamics of this system are relevant to understanding episodes of abrupt climate change such as the Younger Dryas.
