The Jmodel suite consits of several models of different aspects of the Earth System. They can be run from thejmodels website. They are writtern 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 main purpose of the models is to investigate how the Earth system is regualted and controlled by differen feedbacks. While the main focus is on Earth System stabilisation, the models can used for several different purposes 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:. (1). Earth System stabilisation. (2). Global change impact on the Earth System. (3). Responseof the Earth System during major events in deep time>>??(Paloeo). (4). Ocean Biogeochemistry. (5). Earth's Radiation Balance.

There are also pages for each model: Phosphorous model page Nitrogen Phosphorous model page Silicon Phosphorous model page Carbon model page Energy Radiation Balance model page

This site also contians techincal information on how the Java models were programmed and also contians credits / acknowledgements and there is also a discussion forum here LINK associated with the models.

Have added a new carbonpage

     public static void centreScreen(Object frameIn) {
        JFrame frame = (JFrame) frameIn;
        Dimension dim = frame.getToolkit().getScreenSize();
        Rectangle abounds = frame.getBounds();
        frame.setLocation((dim.width - abounds.width) / 2,
                (dim.height - abounds.height) / 2);

Blah de blah. This shows off image syntax.
