Short summary
libcloudph++ is a free and open-source library of schemes representing cloud microphysics (e.g. condensation of water vapour into cloud droplets, collisions between water drops, precipitation) in numerical models. This work adds new schemes that represent aqueous chemical reactions in water drops. The schemes focus on the oxidation of SO2 by O3 and H2O2. The libcloudph++ is now capable of resolving the changes in aerosol sizes caused by both collisions between water drops and aqueous oxidation.
