On completion of this topic you will be:

  • Familiar with SimCLIM screen layout

  • Able to recognise some of the terminology used to describe the different elements of the SimCLIM 4.x for Desktop window


When you start SimCLIM 4.x for Desktop, the cursor (the white arrow) will be floating in the screen. It can be easily manoeuvred through the movement of the mouse. Parts of the  SimCLIM 4.x for Desktop program are activated by left clicking, right clicking and double clicking with the mouse buttons.

Some parts of the SimCLIM 4.x for Desktop window only become active when they are required by the function being undertaken within the program, for example, when a climate change scenario is produced the image display and analysis functions become active.
