Should I modify ros3 when I add new heterogeneous reactions

Hi everyone,

I have added 3 new heterogeneous reactions in mech_cb6r3_ae7_aq.def and updated /CMAQv5.3.2/CCTM/src/MECHS/cb6r3_ae7_aq folder through running /UTIL/chemmech. And I also modify AEROSOL_CHEMISTRY.F. I know that if I use EBI solver, I also need to update /CMAQv5.3.2/CCTM/src/gas/ebi_cb6r3_ae7_aq folder through ruuning /CMAQv5.3.2/UTIL/create_ebi. But If I use ros3 solver, need I make any change in /CMAQv5.3.2/CCTM/src/gas/ros3 folder?
Much appreciated for your help!

Best wishes,

Dear Lingyun,
You do not need to modify ROS3 and Gear solvers. Both are generalized solvers and you can directly use ROS3 or Gear solver. You will need to compile the model after revising AEROSOL_CHEMISTRY.F and RXNS_* flies.


Dear Sarwar,

Thank you very much for your answer´╝ü
