climlab.model

This package contains ready-made models that can be run “off-the-shelf”.

Example
import climlab
#  create a 1D Energy Balance Model
mymodel = climlab.EBM()
#  see what you just created
print(mymodel)
#  run the model
mymodel.integrate_years(2.)
#  display the current state
mymodel.state
#  see what diagnostics have been computed
mymodel.diagnostics.keys()

These modules are fully functional and tested. However users are encouraged to build their own models by explicitly creating individual processes and coupling together as subprocesses of a parent process.

See the documentation for the RRTMG scheme for an example of building a radiative-convective column model from individual components.
