Climate in AIM/CGE is modeled by the MAGICC6 model. The MAGICC model is a simple climate model that has been calibrated based on historical data and data from more complex climate models. It can therefore represent individual climate models that were used in CMIP3 and C4MIP. The main inputs into the MAGICC model are emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants that are the outcomes of the CGE simulations. These are fed into MAGICC. The main outputs are the changes in global mean temperature and radiative forcing levels. For more information about the model, see www.magicc.org.
