Short summary
This paper describes the basic results of the biogenic emission scheme, based on MEGAN, integrated into the ECHAM6-HAMMOZ chemistry climate model. Sensitivity to vegetation and climate-dependent parameters is also analysed. This version of the model is now suitable for many tropospheric investigations concerning the impact of biogenic volatile organic compound emissions on the ozone budget, secondary aerosol formation, and atmospheric chemistry.
