Short summary
Based on the Milankovitch cycle theory, the Daily INSOLation (DINSOL-v1.0) program simulates the incoming solar radiation at the top of the atmosphere, such as the PMIP boundary conditions. Still, users can simulate hypothetical cases by freely setting the Earth's orbital parameters. The program is recommended for educational purposes (from a user-friendly interface) or to prepare data for simplified climate models (from command lines). The program is supported on Linux and Windows.
