WITCH included an internal climate module, which translates the regional emissions into global temperature through atmospheric concentrations. It has been building upon the DICE climate equations (Nordhaus and Sztorc 2013). Alternatively, and to make the climate outcome comparable with other models, it allows a soft link with the MAGICC6 climate model (Meinshausen, Raper, and Wigley 2011) for reporting a number of climate outcomes based on this widely used model.
