Collins, W. J., J. Lamarque, M. Schulz, O. Boucher, V. Eyring, M. Hegglin, A. Maycock, G. Myhre, M. Prather, D. Shindell, and S. J. Smith (2017), AerChemMIP: quantifying the effects of chemistry and aerosols in CMIP6, Geosci. Model. Dev., 10, 585-607, doi:10.5194/gmd-10-585-2017.
Abstract: 

The Aerosol Chemistry Model Intercomparison Project (AerChemMIP) is endorsed by the Coupled-Model Intercomparison Project 6 (CMIP6) and is designed to quantify the climate and air quality impacts of aerosols and chemically reactive gases. These are specifically near-term climate forcers (NTCFs: methane, tropospheric ozone and aerosols, and their precursors), nitrous oxide and ozonedepleting halocarbons. The aim of AerChemMIP is to answer four scientific questions.
