A model of the sulphur cycle is being assembled to assist in the investigation of the roles of DMS and of anthropogenic sulphur in climate change. At present the model consists of two modules: AERO2, a model for aerosol dynamics, and LPMR, a simplified model for cloud particle growth in cumulus clouds. AERO2 and LPMR are embedded into a set of subroutines which act as a statistical driver and enable sensitivity and uncertainty analyses of the output from the codes to be made. In the present paper AERO2 is briefly described, with reference to the existing literature. For the newest module LPMR, a description of the relevant equations is given together with the results of a verification exercise conducted on four test cases available in the literature. The performances of the statistical driver are exemplified with references to the model AERO2 in its reaction chamber and field versions.
