Earth-System Models of Intermediate Complexity

Claussen Martin, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

To address the problem of stability in the natural earth system one has to analyze the dynamic processes between the geosphere and the biosphere. This article outlines the importance of intermediate complexity models and defines Earth Systems Models of Intermediate Complexity (EMIC). It also contains a listing of several EMICs including CLIMBER-2 and IAP RAS global climate model. The paper is clearly written and is illustrated with model outputs. It is a useful resource on intermediate complexity models.
