IMAGE User Manual

by E. Stehfest, L. de Waal, R. Oostenrijk

- This user manual contains the basic information for running the simulation model IMAGE ("Integrated Model to Assess the Global Environment") of PBL. The motivation for this report was a substantial restructuring of the source code for IMAGE version 2.5. The document gives concise content information about the submodels, tells the user how to install the program, describes the directory structure of the run environment, shows how scenarios have to be prepared and run, and gives insight in the restart functionality.
