Multi-Scale Chemistry Modeling (MUSICA)

Group Leader: Dan Marsh

The Atmospheric Chemistry Observations and Modeling (ACOM) Laboratory at NCAR plans to develop a new community modeling infrastructure jointly with different interested groups in the world. MUSICA – the Multi-Scale Infrastructure for Chemistry and Aerosols – will become a computationally feasible global modeling framework that allows for the simulation of large-scale atmospheric phenomena, while still resolving chemistry at emission and exposure relevant scales (down to ~4 km within the next 5 years). MUSICA will eventually replace and extend the current separate community chemistry modeling efforts at NCAR (e.g. WACCM, CAM-Chem, WRF-Chem), paralleling other activities at NCAR to streamline and unify model development.
