BOXMOX - box model extensions to KPP

BOXMOX is an extension to the Kinetic PreProcessor (KPP, that allows for an easy set up of box model simulations by providing input data (initial conditions, environmental parameters, mixing/ventilation) as simple text files.

The system can be used to simulate chamber experiments, Lagrange-type air parcel studies, as well as to describe chemistry in the atmospheric boundary layer. An example application has been published in Knote et al. (2015)

BOXMOX is a collaborative effort of the University Augsburg, Germany and NCAR, Boulder. You can find more information, online tools and downloads on the BOXMOX website:
