Solution concept General equilibrium (closed economy)
Solution method SimulationImaclim-R is implemented in Scilab, and uses the fonction fsolve from a shared C++ library to solve the static equilibrium system of non-linear equations.
Anticipation Recursive dynamics: each year the equilibrium is solved (system of non-linear equations), in between two years parameters to the equilibrium evolve according to specified functions.

IMACLIM-R computes CO2 emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels , using consistent energy balances and emission coefficients for each fuel. CO2 emissions from Land-Use and Land-Use changes are modelled in the Land-Use Nexus.

Non-CO2 GHG gases are not modeled explicitly. If climate indicators need to be computed, exogenous trends are assumed for non-CO2 GHG gases.
