In this technical note we present the multipurpose atmospheric chemistry model MECCA. Owing to its versatility and modular structure, it can be used for tropospheric as well as stratospheric chemistry calculations. Extending the code to other domains (e.g. mesospheric or oceanic chemistry) is easily possible. MECCA contains a compre-5 hensive atmospheric reaction mechanism that currently includes: 1) the basic O 3 , CH 4 , HO x , and NO x chemistry, 2) non-methane hydrocarbon (NMHC) chemistry… CONTINUE READING
