# Updates in JPL Publication 15-10

= Summary --
JPL has released its 18th evaluation of chemical rate coefficients for atmospheric studies (Burkholder et al., 2015)." A new page (**Updates in JPL Publication 15-10**) is being created to compare rates between GEOS-Chem v10 and JPL Publication 15-10. A similar comparison was done for JPL Publication 10-6 (Updating standard chemistry with JPL 10-6). For each reaction coefficient that was updated, we will note the rate expression currently used in v10, the updated expression in JPL 15-10, and provide a plot of the two rate coefficients. For expressions that are only temperature dependent, rates will be plotted as a function of temperature between 220 K and 320 K. For termolecular reactions, expressions will be plotted as a function of altitude with temperature and pressure following the 1976 US Standard Atmosphere.

Notes:

- Skipping CH2OO + ... on 1-93
- Skipping syn-CH3CHOO and anti-CH3CHOO on 1-94
- Skipping FOx reactions
- Skipped ClOx reactions, needs review
- Skipped BrOx reactions, needs review
- Skipped IOx reactions, needs review
- SOx reactions need further consideration perhaps with overlap of Iodine IO and DMS? IO + CH3SCH3 -> products
