How do various factors affect our climate? How do researchers investigate, how our future climate might look like? What assumptions do they make and how do the results change if I vary those assumptions?


Simulations help to understand how our climate is affected by many different factors and how our future climate depends on changes in those factors.


Here we list a few simulations that the intereted lay person can experiment with. Enjoy!


Climate Interactive

Climate Interactive creates interactive, easy-to-use, and scientifically rigorous tools that help people understand how to address the complex, interconnected challenges that affect our lives on Earth. Based on a long tradition of system dynamics modeling that explores the interplay between the human economy and the Earth’s systems, our simulations help people see connections, play out scenarios, and see what works to address the biggest challenges we face.


Global Carbon Project

The Global Carbon Project has some great interactive maps that show the history and development of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere.


World Climate

Simulate climate negotiations. Some materials are also avaliable in German.
