Working Group 1: Earth and human systems modelling intercomparison project

Working Group 1 will identify, assess and model key interactions that regulate the state of the planetary (i.e., the physical climate system, the cryosphere, oceans, terrestrial biosphere systems, cycles of water, nutrients and carbon), and human systems. This will inform setting targets for a stable and safe planet, and will help us in developing und understanding pathways that are compatible with these targets.
