The Global Change Assessment Model: An overview and future directions

Lecturer:
Dr. Pralit Patel
Joint Global Change Research Institute,College Park MD, USA


Abstract:

The Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM) is an integrated assessment model with a long history initially focusing on Climate Change mitigation by reducing GHG emissions from the energy system.  This model is under continual development to the Joint Global Change Research Institute in College Park, Maryland and has been made freely available and open source since 2011.  The current version is 4.0 and is a global model that projects global energy use, land use, and the resulting emissions in 5 year increments until the end of the century.We start this seminar by briefly explaining the path along which the model has evolved focusing on what research questions we hoped to address.  Share some of the significant projects the model has participated in: including being one of five integrated assessment models to participate in the IPCC's RCP process, integrated earth systems model, the platform for regional integrated assessment modeling and analysis.  Highlight some interesting recent findings: abundant natural gas, global water demands and scarcity.   Finally we give some insights about the future directions of the modeling effort. These include expanding detail in China, spatially explicitly analysis, balancing water supplies and demands, and including more climate feedbacks.
