Suppose we have a bucket sitting under a tap with water flowing into it at a constant rate. The bucket has a hole in the bottom, so water leaks out over time. The rate at which water flows out of the hole won't be constant because the water pressure at the bottom depends on the height of the water in the bucket. Therefore, if the bucket is nearly empty, only a trickle will escape, but if the bucket is full, the extra weight of the water will push the water out of the hole much faster. Also, if the hole is bigger, the water will flow out much faster. For this model, we're going to assume that the outflow rate is proportional to the volume of water in the bucket multiplied by the size of the whole: Out_flow = Volume_In_bucket * Size_of_hole

The key questions we want to understand are: ● How does the plant fertilization feedback work? ● Are plants taking up a significant amount of the carbon humans are emitting? ● Can we solve the climate change problem by planting trees to take up our CO2?

Sim App (Sim)

An interface that allows users to interact with a model.

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™.
