Units balance: Yes

Format: Vensim; requires Model Reader or an advanced version

Notes: See discussion at metasd.

Files:

Grinsted_v3b‎ – first model; default calibration replicates Rahmstorf, and optimization is set up to adjust constant terms to fit Rahmstorf slope to data

Grinsted_v3c – second model; updated data and calibration, as in Part III

Grinsted_v3c-k2 – third model; set up for Kalman filtering, as in Part V
