Short summary
We present a new version of the Brazilian developments on the Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (BRAMS) where different previous versions for weather, chemistry, and the carbon cycle were unified in a single harmonized software system. This version also has a new set of state-of-the-art physical parametrizations and higher computational parallel and memory usage efficiency. BRAMS has been applied for research and operational weather and air quality forecasting, largely in South America.
