COSMO-ART model output

Following the AQMEII recommendations, the following variables are dumped for post-processing:

3D gases

  • Inorganic species: OZONE, SO2, NO, NO2, N2O5, NO3, HNO3, PAN, NH3, CO, H2O2
  • VOCs: HCHO, ISO (isoprene), TOL, ETH, OL2 (ethene), API (a-pinene)
  • Total VOC and OH-reactivity are calculated online in the model. A new 3D variable vocreac is created in data_cosmo_art.f90. The array is filled in within organize_cosmo_art.f90 within a loop calling the radm2k chemistry. The species considered for computing the VOC reactivity are
    • VOC_REAC = sum of OH reactivities of ETH, HC3, HC5, HC8, OL2, OLT, OLI, TOL, XYL, CSL, HCHO, ALD, KET, ISO, ONIT
