This is a model used in the past

The carbon cycle model consists of two main components for: (1) the representation of physical processes (the physical system) and (2) the representation of the processes related to the biological and geochemical parts of the carbon cycle (the biogeochemical system).

The physical system includes the atmosphere (ECHAM5) model and the ocean, sea ice (OPA8.2/LIM) model. The biogechemical system includes the land and vegetation (SILVA) model and the ocean biogeochemistry (PELAGOS) model.

The following research paper contains the guide of “ICC : the Carbon Cycle Model”.
