The FLINT platform combines expertise, concepts and scientific modules derived from the development of the Canadian Carbon Budget Model (CBM) and the Australian Full Carbon Accounting Model (FullCAM). FLINT moves GHG equivalents between pools while maintaining mass-balance, i.e. matter (e.g. carbon) cannot disappear or be created, there is always a source pool and a destination pool. How much matter is moved between pools depends on the modules that are applied. The modules are based on scientific publications and empirical observations.
The CBM modules have been developed over 30 years and are based on peer-reviewed papers.
The following papers have used the FLINT-based GCBM:
