Iztapalapa 09340, Mexico D.F., Mexico (Also at El Colegio Nacional) ABSTRACT A software has been developed to cope with the detailed analysis of photochemical processes taking place in a polluted atmosphere. The software is designed to allow for a coupling of four modulii whose aim is to model the reaction mechanisms with a radiation profile, an emission pattern and weather behavior of a given locality. A visual system aids in monitoring minute per minute time variations of the chemical species involved as well as the rate of the underlying reactions. This model has been applied to simulate the photochemical processes occurri
