ASAD (A Self-contained Atmospheric chemistry coDe) is a package that has been developed for integrating chemical schemes in atmospheric models.

ASAD doesn't require the user to write code to solve these chemical schemes. This makes it easy and fast to develop different chemical scenarios. ASAD has been used in the Centre for Atmospheric Science to develop both detailed stratospheric and tropospheric chemistry schemes and can be used in box, 1D, 2D and 3D models without any code changes. ASAD comes with the UGAMP/ACMSU master reaction database containing bimolecular, trimolecular, photolysis and heterogeneous reactions for use in building your own reaction sets and species.
