Constable: A simple One-Dimensional climate model for climatologists in geography

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

7 Scopus citations


A one-dimensional global climate model is constructed from both the basic energy balance equation for the earth- atmosphere system and the planetary boundary layer equations of motion. The theoretically based model accurately simulates many features of the present climate system and appears useful in evaluating various climatic change mechanisms. The simplicity of this process-response model increases its educational and research applicability tor climatologists in geography.
