C3IAM includes an internal climate module -- C3IAM/Climate, which translates the regional emissions into global temperature and radiative forcing through atmospheric concentrations. Alternatively, C3IAM allows a soft link with the MAGICC6 climate model for reporting a number of climate outcomes based on this widely used model. Besides, C3IAM includes the Climate Change Loss Model (C3IAM/Loss), which can assess the impacts of temperature/sea level/extreme events [1].
