The model produces annual greenhouse gases emissions (and, in certain model versions, air pollutants and short-lived climate species).

The climate effects are calculated thanks to the MAGICC diagnostics toolbox using model outputs.

Most studies with the model are on climate mitigation. However, the impacts of climate change on energy use and comfort in the residential sector have also been studied with the model12.
