Resolved Bugs

Initialization of Sulfate Ion Concentrations

In the neutralized regime of the NH4-SO4-NO3 metastable system (Case D3) of v2.1, sulfate ion was initialized as zero at lines 2028 and 2084 by

   MOLAL(5) = ZERO

The algorithm requires instead that the potential salts to be deliquesced would be the starting place for this calculation as in

   MOLAL(5) = PSI2

This change has been made at both locations for v2.2.

Activity Coefficient Calculations

ISORROPIA v2.1 seemed to indicate that four different subroutines were used to calculate activity coefficients; however, these subroutines were not called individually nor had they been would the answers have been consistent with v1.7. CALCACT and nested subroutines were corrected to allow all corrected routines to be accessed.

The result is a significant improvement in computational speed for systems that do not involve all species.
