BOXMOX python interface

Project description


boxmox is the Python wrapper for the chemical box model BOXMOX (a standalone C/Fortran executable).


BOXMOX model needs to be installed

The BOXMOX chemical box model needs to be installed and the KPP_HOME environment variable has to be set. Download and instructions are our website at

Environment variable needs to be set

Additionally, boxmox needs a path to write temporary model results to, given through the environment variable BOXMOX_WORK_PATH. This directory needs to be accessible and writeable by the user. Set it in your environment, e.g., through:

export BOXMOX_WORK_PATH=/where/you/want/boxmox/to/write/stuff/to/

Remember to close the shell and log in again for these changes to take effect.


We are looking forward to receiving your new issue report.
