Figures S1-S9 show CAM4 and CAM5 simulated HNO 3 , NO, NO 2 , NOx, and OH compared 3 against observations by several campaigns. Vertical profiles of observations (box and whisker 4 plot) and CAM4 (blue) and CAM5 (red) model results are plotted as a function of height (km). 5 The numbers along the right vertical axis represent the number of observations at each vertical 6 height. The box represents the central 50% and 90% of observations while the star represents 7 the mean. For OH, model

(2010). 8 OH values are contoured with bright colors (red) representing higher values and darker colors 9 (blue) representing lower values. 10 The comparison of the CAM5 and CAM4 simulated results to observations provided here 11 provides a general perspective of how the models compare to observations and also to compare 12 the performance of CAM5 to CAM4. The detailed analyses of how CAM4 compares to 13 observations on a finer scale is provided in Lamarque et al. (2012). Overall, the models are in 14 agreement with each other and with the results obtained by the detailed comparison of CAM4 15 to observations in Lamarque et al. (2012). Although both models agree well with observations 16 in the mid-troposphere (4-8 km), for some species and locations, CAM5 agrees better with 17 observations. 18
