      The DEEP model is a multi-sectoral, multi-regional, multi-gas dynamic computable general equilibrium model. It was developed for analysing the economics of climate change policy, and to generate emission scenarios for input ...
    • Adjustment costs for investments in the abatement of climate change under uncertainty 

      Aaheim, H. Asbjørn (CICERO Working Paper;2000:05, Working paper, 2000)
