Abstract The ASAD software package frees the atmospheric chemist from writing code to solve chemical time dependent equationsand can be used for a wide range of problems including stratospheric chemistry, tropospheric chemistry or pollution studies, and for 1D, 2D and 3D models. Since little programming is required, the effects of programming errors are greatly reduced and consistent results between different models ensured. Through the use of input files to list the desired chemical species and their... Title of program: ASAD Catalogue Id: ADGC_v1_0 Nature of problem ASAD has been designed to be the chemical part of an atmospheric chemisry-transport model. It is not a complete atmospheric chemistry model. It solves the time-dependent chemical equations. The problem is specified by inputting a list of chemical species, their properties and a list of chemical reactions. The user can also include some of the common approximations (such as chemical families) used in atmospheric chemistry models. ASAD has been designed to be treated as a black box and therefore h ... Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ADGC_v1_0; ASAD; 10.1016/S0010-4655(97)00056-8 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
