Modelling the Earth’s Climate

Educational software for climate simulation

The SimClimat software is an educational software for simulating the climate of the Earth and the planets. Through a playful and user-friendly interface, it allows you to carry out climate simulations on different time scales. The results concerning global surface temperature, sea level, the extension of ice caps and the composition of the atmosphere are displayed in the form of curves and drawings. The user can test the influence of various parameters influencing climate, such as astronomical parameters or atmospheric composition, and can switch certain climate feedbacks on or off.

This software is a pedagogical tool for dealing with many points in climate-related programmes in science education and VTS.
