The AIM is an integrated assessment model framework which consists of 4 models. The core of the model is AIM/CGE. The whole economic activities are represented in the AIM/CGE, but energy, agriculture and land use are relatively disaggregated than other sectors. AIM/PLUM deals with spatial explicit land use downscaling and also provides bioenergy supply curve. AIM/Dynamic provides global total emissions constraints for AIM/CGE incorporating MAC (Marginal Abatement Cost Curve) and non-CO2 information from AIM/CGE. The climate outcomes are made by MAGICC. This wiki page mostly explains about AIM/CGE.
