SWIFT is a numerically efficient stratospheric ozone chemistry scheme intended for the use in coupled general circulation models (AOGCMs). In our approach we approximate the numerical output of a full stratospheric chemistry model with orthogonal polynomial functions of higher degree. This approach is also referred to as repro-modelling and has been successfully applied to chemical models in previous studies.
Due to the differences in polar and extrapolar stratospheric ozone chemistry the SWIFT model is split into two modules:
This repository contains the version 2.0 of the Polar SWIFT model and the version 1.0 of the Extrapolar SWIFT model:
