Modeling

ACOM Community Models

ACOM builds, critically evaluates and applies process, regional- and global-scale models that address atmospheric chemistry research questions, with a focus on couplings between different components of the Earth system (water cycle, biosphere, cryosphere). This section provides the necessary modeling tools to address the following scientific challenges.
