  • Bugnion, Véronique. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1999-10)
    Changes in runoff from Greenland and Antarctica are often cited as one of the major concerns linked to anthropogenic changes in climate. The changes in mass balance, and associated changes in sea-level, of these two ice ...
  • Bozonnat, C.; Schlosser, C.A. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-10)
    The extent, availability and reliability of solar power generation are assessed over Europe, and—following a previously developed methodology—special attention is given to the intermittency of solar power. Combined with ...
  • Cosseron, A.; Schlosser, C.A.; Gunturu, U.B. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-03)
    Wind power is assessed over Europe, with special attention given to the quantification of intermittency. Using the methodology developed in Gunturu and Schlosser (2011), the MERRA boundary flux data was used to compute ...
  • Gunturu, U.B.; Schlosser, C.A. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2011-12)
    Wind resource in the continental and offshore United States has been reconstructed and characterized using metrics that describe, apart from abundance, its availability, persistence and intermittency. The Modern Era ...
  • Qi, T.; Winchester, N.; Zhang, D.; Zhang, X.; Karplus, V.J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-05)
    The China-in-Global Energy Model (C-GEM) is a global Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model that captures the interaction of production, consumption and trade among multiple global regions and sectors – including five ...
  • Nam, K.-M.; Reilly, J.M. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-03)
    In this study, we introduce a new method of downscaling global population distribution, for which purpose conventional approaches have serious limitations in application. Our approach is “eclectic,” as it explores the ...
  • Fant, C.A.; Gueneau, A.; Strzepek, K.; Awadalla, S.; Farmer, W.; Blanc, E.; Schlosser, C.A. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-04)
    This paper describes the use of the CliCrop model in the context of climate change general assessment modeling. The MIT Integrated Global System Model (IGSM) framework is a global integrated assessment modeling framework ...
  • Monier, Erwan; Gao, Xiang (MIT Joint Program, 2013-05)
    Extreme weather and climate events, such as heat waves, droughts and severe precipitation events, have substantial impacts on ecosystems and the economy. However, future climate simulations display large uncertainty in ...
  • Deschenes, Olivier; Greenstone, Michael (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2007-08)
    This paper produces the first large-scale estimates of the U.S. health related welfare costs due to climate change. Using the presumably random year-to-year variation in temperature and two state of the art climate models, ...
  • Kasahara, Satoru.; Paltsev, Sergey.; Reilly, John M.; Jacoby, Henry D.; Ellerman, A. Denny. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2005-05)
    In 2003 Japan proposed a Climate Change Tax to reduce its CO2 emissions to the level required by the Kyoto Protocol. If implemented, the tax would be levied on fossil fuel use and the revenue distributed to several sectors ...
  • Nam, Kyung-Min; Waugh, Caleb J.; Paltsev, Sergey; Reilly, John M.; Karplus, Valerie J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-10-01)
    Air pollution has been recognized as a significant problem in China. In its Twelfth Five Year Plan (FYP), China proposes to reduce SO2 and NOx emissions significantly, and here we investigate the cost of achieving those ...
  • Stone, Peter H. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2004-02)
    We identify three major areas of ignorance which limit predictability in current ocean GCMs. One is the very crude representation of subgrid-scale mixing processes. These processes are parameterized with coefficients whose ...
  • Monier, Erwan; Weare, Bryan C. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2011-01)
    A thorough analysis of the ozone transport was carried out using the Transformed-Mean Eulerian (TEM) tracer transport equation and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Re- Analysis (ERA-40). In ...
  • Monier, Erwan; Weare, Bryan C. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2011-01)
    The momentum budget of the Transformed Eulerian-Mean (TEM) equation is calculated using the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Re-Analysis (ERA-40). This study outlines the considerable contribution ...
  • Gueneau, Arthur; Schlosser, C. Adam; Strzepek, Kenneth M.; Gao, Xiang; Monier, Erwan (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2012-09)
    It is estimated that 40% of all crops grown in the world today are grown using irrigation. As a consequence, shifting precipitation patterns due to climate change are viewed as a major threat to food security. This report ...
  • Caron, J.; Metcalf, G.; Reilly, J. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2014-08)
    We improve on existing estimates of the carbon dioxide (CO2) content of consumption across regions of the United States. Using a multi-regional input-output (MRIO) framework, we estimate the direct and indirect CO2 emissions ...
  • Ellerman, A. Denny.; Tsukada, Natsuki. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 2001-07)
    Multi-fueled electric utilities are commonly seen as offering relatively greater opportunities for reasonably priced carbon abatement through changes in the dispatch of generating units from capacity using high emission ...
  • Jacoby, Henry D.; Eckaus, Richard S.; Ellerman, A. Denny.; Prinn, Ronald G.; Reiner, David M.; Yang, Zili. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1996-07)
    Policies under consideration within the Climate Convention would impose CO₂ controls on only a subset of nations. A model of economic growth and emissions, coupled to an analysis of the climate system, is used to explore ...
  • Wang, Chien.; Prinn, Ronald G. (MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, 1998-04)
    Using a coupled global atmospheric chemistry and climate model we have predicted the evolution of tropospheric concentrations of chemical species along with climate parameters, based on a set of economic model predictions ...
