[1] A noniterative, implicit, mass-conserving, unconditionally stable, positive-definite numerical scheme that solves nonequilibrium air-ocean transfer equations for any atmospheric constituent and time step is derived. The method, referred to as the Ocean Predictor of Dissolution (OPD) scheme, is coupled with EQUISOLV O, a new ocean chemical equilibrium module based on the EQUISOLV II atmospheric aerosol solver. EQUISOLV O converges iteratively, but is unique because it is positive-definite… Expand
