Tropospheric Chemistry with Isoprene - TropIsop

Difference in tropospheric column of isoprene caused by changes to emissions between 1990 and 1992 caused by the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. This study was performed by nudging the model to ERA-40 re-analysis. Telford et al ACP 10 7117 (2010)

55 species, 48 advected tracers, 164 reactions

The addition of the Mainz Isoprene Mechanism to the Standard Tropospheric Chemistry scheme allows for more detailed studies of land-surface-climate interactions and this scheme can be run at decadal to centennial time scales. The scheme has 129 gas-phase reactions with 35 photolysis reactions and has emissions into 9 species, with isoprene oxidation considered. Emissions of isoprene are scaled to be diurnally varying.
