Emissions - IFs
|Model Documentation - IFs|
|Institution||Frederick S. Pardee Center for International Futures, University of Denver https://pardee.du.edu/ (Pardee Center)|
|Concept||International Futures (IFs) is a country level (186 countries), long term integrated assessment system, hard-linking demographic, economic, education, health, governance, agriculture, energy, infrastructure, water, climate and other models; it is fully embedded in an interactive interface and is open source with web-based and downloadable versions.|
|Solution method||Dynamic recursive with annual time steps through 2100.|
Fossil fuel consumption generates carbon emissions specific to coal, oil, and natural gas use. Net deforestation generates additional carbon emissions or removal. IFs does not represent other greenhouse gas emissions. The model exogenously represents net removals from the atmosphere by ocean and land sinks and traces resultant level of atmospheric carbon. See topics on the energy and agriculture models for discussion of formulations and of control parameters.
