If WRF-Chem is capable of modeling halogen chemistry?


New member
I read an article (Importance of reactive halogens in the tropical marine atmosphere: a regional modelling study using WRF-Chem) which used WRF-Chem to model the halogens and said MOZART-4 mechanism has been extended to include bromine, chlorine and iodine chemistry. Then I checked the description of MOZART-4 (GMD - Description and evaluation of the Model for Ozone and Related chemical Tracers, version 4 (MOZART-4)) which displayed all the chemical species and gas-phase reactions included in MOZART-4, but I didn't see any halogen in it. So I wonder if WRF-Chem itself is capable of modeling halogen chemistry and if it has such capability, which module/script is in charge of halogen chemistry and where is the module/script located and if it is possible for user to modify the code to better apply for my own study?
I'd appreciate if someone help me with this question.
