SCRAM simulates the dynamics (coagulation, condensation/evaporation and nucleation)
of externally-mixed atmospheric particles.
aerosols by both composition and size, based on a comprehensive combination of
all chemical species and their mass-fraction sections. All three main processes
involved in aerosol dynamics (coagulation, condensation/evaporation and nucleation)
are included. Please read the
for more theoretical details and model validation.

Hardware and Software Requirement
SCRAM is written in the programming language FORTRAN with the support of some foreign functions
written in C++. It can run on PC or a cluster with both the gfortran and the GUN gcc Compiler and under
a Linux system. Before the compilation, make sure the construction tool: SCONS has already been installed.
If not you can obtain it through the following instruction of the site below:
The random access memory (RAM) requirement for the 0D simulation is very small. For example: it
only takes 4MB RAM for the fully dynamic external simulation case presents in the fourth section of the
manuscript. And it nished the 12 hours simulation in about 2 minutes on a standard pc with a processor
clocked at 3.20 GHz and requires about 1MB of disk space.
The NetCDF library is also required, you can download from the following site:
After all the required software and library are ready, the compilation can be done by typing a simple
command: scons, within a terminal under the program main path.
Technical details about how to operate the model as will as input and output files,
please read the User Manual.
Introduced a new redistribution method for bulk equilibrium approach.
