Kevin, Jim and Shami just submitted a paper on the theoretical foundations of atmospheric chemistry to the Astrophysical Journal. It unifies the various key quantities and their derivations under a single, common umbrella. It also provides easy-to-use analytical models for molecular abundances vs. carbon-to-oxygen ratio. The formalism sets the stage for the first version of VULCAN.
