Working Group Priorities


  • Support model developments for CAM7-chem Workhorse model in collaboration with other working groups with focus on chemistry and aerosols
  • Participation in model intercomparison projects (MIPs)
  • Development of regional refined configurations for CAMChem and MUSICA
  • Support and analysis of Aircraft campaigns (e.g., ATom, KORUS-AQ, SOAS, NOMADSS, SEAC4RS)
  • Development of chemical forecasting capabilities and data assimilation

Open Science Questions

  • The role of interactive fires on the climate system
  • Importance an improved scalability of lightening parameterizations with changing scales
  • Important couplings between atmosphere and other components (land and ocean)
  • Updates in aqueous-phase chemistry
  • Changes in atmosphere composition a changing climate
