At the lower boundary, abundances of condensible elements relative to
hydrogen are set to be the same as the solar abundance
given by Asploud *et al*. (2005)
^{[9]}.
The vertical profiles of mixing ratios are obtained by the following procedures.

The initial mixing ratio is homogeneous
(*q*_{H2O} = 7.816 ×
10^{-4}) below the level where relative humidity for the
initial temperature reaches 75 %.
At altitudes above that level,
the mixing ratio is given as
the relative humidity for the initial temperature to be 75 %.

The mixing ratio is given constant as the value
at the lower boundary
(*q*_{H2S} = 2.360 ×10^{-5})
up to the level where the following relationship hold
for the mixing ratios of H_{2}S an NH_{3}
given at the lower boundary with the initial temperature,

At altitudes above that level, the mixing ratio is
given such that eq. (E.1) will hold
for the initial temperature profile.
Detailed expression of *K _{p}* is given in
Appendix F .

The mixing ratio is given constant as the value
at the lower boundary
(*q*_{NH3} = 1.030 × 10^{-4})
below the level where eq. (E.1) is satisfied for
the initial temperature and mixing ratios of H_{2}S and
NH_{3} at the lower boundary.

From that level up to the altitude where
*q*_{H2S} ≈ 0, the mixing ratio is
given such that the relationship of eq. (E.1) will hold true for the
initial temperature.

Then the mixing ratio is given constant
above the level of *q*_{H2S} ≈ 0
upto the level at which the relative humidity
for the initial temperature reaches 75%.

At altitudes above this level, the mixing ratio is given such that the relative humidity for the initial temperature is 75 %.
