The Global Carbon Cycle Model is a 5-box model, which includes five of the major carbon pools (atmosphere, plants, oceans, soils, and fossil fuels), and the fluxes between them. Use the Global Carbon Cycle Model to explore how carbon moves throughout the Earth system, how different pools and fluxes interact, and the impacts of human actions on the carbon cycle. Learn more at www.globe.gov (the GLOBE Program).

The Global Carbon Cycle Model with Feedbacks builds on the Simple Global Carbon Cycle Model by including ecosystem feedbacks as well as new parameters such as CO2 and temperature effects, more carbon pools, and marine biota. Use this model to explore how carbon moves through the Earth system, how the pools and fluxes interact, and how human actions can impact the carbon cycle.

Sim App (Sim)

An interface that allows users to interact with a model.

Image of a sim

Sim apps allow users to interact with a model using buttons, sliders, knobs, tables, graphs, and storytelling. These interactions help users understand how parts of a system interact.

Interfaces are created by model authors in the Stella desktop software and can be uploaded to the isee Exchange.

Model

A diagram that represents how elements in a system influence one another.

Models are mathematical representations of how elements in a system are connected and interact (e.g., ecosystems, organizations, supply chains). When running models on the Exchange, results can be viewed in output devices like graphs and tables.

Models appear in the isee Exchange directory when authors upload them from the Stella® desktop software or create them with Stella Online™.

Causal Loop Diagram (CLD)

A map that represents the feedback structure of a system.

CLDs are high-level maps that represents the feedback structure of a system and easily communicate the essence of a model. They appear in the isee Exchange when authors upload them from the Stella desktop software or create them with Stella Online™.
