CABMOD computes the temperature, velocity, altitude and elemental composition as a function of time for a particle entering the Earth’s atmosphere with a given initial velocity, size and zenith angle. At each iteration, the ablation into the gas phase of elemental and molecular species is calculated.
Given a specific temperature profile, it can compute the ablation of elements if this temperature profile is applied to a particle (allows direct comparison with laboratory data).
