Integrated Global System Model

The Integrated Global System Model is an Integrated Assessment Model developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change. The IGSM couples the MIT Earth System Model, an Earth system model of intermediate complexity, to the Economic Projection and Policy Analysis, a human activity model that represents the world's economy, it has been used to understand the interactions between the global climate system. IGSM was introduced in 1999 in a paper by Ronald Prinn et al. in a paper in Climatic Change Version 2 was released in 2005. The IGSM has been referenced by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; the IGSM has been referenced in academic literature on climate systems, human activity, policy implications. Version 1 was used by the model creators for an analysis of the Kyoto Protocol in a 1999 paper for Nature. Version 2.2 was used by the creators of the model in a study published as a working paper in 2008.

A modified version was published in Climatic Change in 2011. A 2012 working paper did an analysis of climate policy targets under uncertainty; the strategy for investigating the impacts of climate change on Earth’s physical and human resources and links to their socio-economic consequences in the MIT IGSM is discussed in an article published in Climatic Change in 2013. A demonstration of the IGSM capabilities for multi-sectoral assessment of climate impacts under a range of consistent and integrated economic and climate scenarios that are responsive to new policies and business expectations was published in Nature Communications in 2018.

Zuqnin Chronicle

The Zuqnin Chronicle is a chronicle written in Syriac concerning the events from Creation to c. 775 CE. The fourth, historiographically important, part of the chronicle provides a detailed account of life of non-Muslims in Upper Mesopotamia, Palestine during and after the Muslim conquest of Syria, it was most produced in the Zuqnin Monastery near Amida on the upper Tigris. The work is preserved in Cod. Vat. 162. This is now in the Vatican, it consists of four parts. The first part reaches to the epoch of Constantine the Great, is in the main an epitome of the Eusebian Chronicle; the second part reaches to Theodosius II and follows the Ecclesiastical History of Socrates of Constantinople. The fourth part is not, like the others, a compilation but the original work of the author and reaches to the year 774-775 the date when he was writing; the scholar Assemani ascribed it to Dionysius of Tel Mahre, another Syrian chronologist of the late eighth century. On the publication of the fourth part of the chronicle by M Chabot, it was shown by Theodor Nöldeke, Nau, that Assemani had been mistaken, that the chronicle in question was the work of an earlier writer.

This writer was most the stylite monk Joshua, at Zuqnin. The author was an amateur historian, his aim was moral instruction, not history "as such", his work most depended on earlier works, has thus be accused of plagiarism. However all points to him being honest in; because of these intentions, the author described the portents in this chronicle. This chronicle involves a drawing of Halley's Comet in 760 and auroral drawings in 771/772 and 773 June. Cod. Vat. 162 is the autograph, in fact the first draft of the manuscript.
