Exercise 8: The z-level and the sigma-coordinate versions of the governing equations.

Write down by inspection both the z-level and -coordinate versions of governing equations for a photochemical compound (carbonyl sulphide). Assume its creation rate is proportional to local solar insolation (hint: look at the equation for T) and its destruction rate is proportional to its concentration, but with a coefficient that is a function of temperature T.
