1/12/09 Foreword to the first edition

This web site is intended to provide an interactive access to the simulations performed with three complementary models, used in an integrated and harmonized manner. Since the project has officially started only recently (October 2009), the development of these interactivity features is still in progress. For the moment, the simulations shown on this site correspond to predefined scenarios, for which the user can only explore the importance of a limited number of parameters or assumptions. In the comming weeks or months the interactivity of the workspace will improve.

We have selected the scenarios explored in this first edition of this website as those that are very close to the main topics in discussion in the preliminary exchanges preceding COP-15.
