Welcome to the KRC Wiki

KRC is incredibly flexible and has a wide range of functionality. Therefore, it is important to learn the basic capability of KRC.
  • What can it do?
  • How does it work?
  • What conditions can be adjusted within the model?
In short, KRC can do a great deal and can vary almost any condition desired.

The goal of this wiki page is to answer such questions, introduce new users to KRC, and reveal the full capabilities of KRC to both general and more advanced users. This wiki creates a central location for all KRC related questions and resources of the KRC Thermal Model.

What is KRC? 

Here are some examples of plots that KRC can create once the model is understood. View more plots here

This diurnal plot indicates surface and atmospheric temperatures for an entire day at different times of year. Click here to learn more.
This plot indicates the seasonal changes in downward thermal flux emitted from the atmosphere hitting the surface. Click here to learn more.
This full coverage map depicts the surface temperature based on KRC Model Runs performed by Hugh H. Kieffer. Figure 10. Kieffer, H. H. (2013). For more information view PDF or Online article
