Abstract: Since many political decisions concerning air quality are based on models, modelling reproducibility and quality assurance are of interest to a wide audience. We developed a modular computer program called CAMxRunner to address this need. CAMxRunner automates runs of the Comprehensive Air quality Model with extensions (CAMx) including pre- and post-processing. Except for the preparation of a configuration file, manual steps are eliminated. CAMxRunner can break the sequential day-by-day structure of the classical approach and allows for parallel pre- and post-processing, speeding up the process. Using this approach, we could speed up a model run by a factor of two.
