The Jmodel suite consits of several models of different aspects of the Earth System. They can be run from the [[jmodels|Jmodels website]]. They are written in Java, and hence  are trivial to run from just about any machine, PC, Mac or otherwise. The models are controlled via graphical user interfaces; no knowledge of computer programming is required to get them running.

The Earth. Photographed in 1972 by the crew of the Apollo 17 mission. It is sometimes known as the Blue Marble photograph.

Models

The JModel suite consists of a number of models of aspects of the Earth System. They can all be run from the JModels website. They are written in the Java language for maximum portability, and are capable of running on most computing platforms including Windows, MacOS and Unix/Linux. The models are controlled via graphical user interfaces (GUI), so no knowledge of computer programming is required to run them.

The models currently available from the JModels website are:

Earth system

The main purpose of the models is to investigate how material and energy cycles of the Earth system are regulated and controlled by different feedbacks. While the central focus is on these feedbacks and Earth System stabilisation, the models can also be used in other ways and for this reason they are several different pathways through this Wiki.

Depending on your area of interest you should select between the following paths:
