These data are the result of a box model that can compute the photochemical evolution of an air parcel submitted to changes in density, pressure, temperature, and atmospheric composition on Mars. It mimics the ascent of an air parcel at a speed of 10 cm/s that corresponds to the approximate speed at which upward transport is expected to occur during dusty events and around the southern summer solstice. The actual file content is described in the Readme.txt file accompanying the data files deposited. Each event simulated has its specific file, that is Martian Year (MY) 34 Global Dust Storm, Perihelion, as well as MY35 Perihelion and C-storm.
