Abstract:

This report summarizes the development and implementation of an advanced state-of-the-art computer code, the Chlorine Model Study Program CMSP, which models the trace gas composition of the atmosphere from the surface to 80 km employing over sixty relevant chemical reactions and parameterizing vertical transport by a selected eddy diffusion profile. A significant feature is the computation of solar flux available for photolysis by a multiple scattering atmosphere including the effect of surface reflection. Program documentation includes a complete listing of the code, a detailed flow chart, and several test case results in addition to a detailed program description and users guide. Author
