This cource focuses on modeling on global environmental issue such as global warming and economic growth. Topics include IAM (Integrated Assessment Model), its component models such as bottom-up model, top-down model, population projection, demand estimation), and future scenario. The course enables students to understand the characteristics of models through lectures. The models introduced in this cource have been used in discussion such as future CO2 emission target and corbon tax. Students will be interested in global environmental issue and think about the issue by themselves after this cource.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand characteristics of the models which are used in global environemental issues.
2) Think and propose about appropriate model framework.
3) Have a appropriate presentation about 2).
Global environmental issue, economic grouwth, model analysis, IAM (Integrated Assessment Model)
