The Exoplanet Simulator Project -- Click here to try the online version!

Using the LMD Generic Global Climate Model, I have developed a new tool which provides an accelerated/interactive/easy-to-use simulation of the climate of Earth-like planets.

The model provides an "hands on" experience by showing how the surface and atmospheric temperature as well as the profile of water vapor evolves through time when the external forcing (insolation, star spectrum, ...) or the planet (quantity of CO2, initial amount of water reservoir, surface pressure ...) is modified.

Interested in using the tool ?


The LAPS model is now referenced on and EMACS websites.
