Abstract. Electronically excited states of molecular and atomic oxygen (six of O2 and two of O) were implemented in the proposed Multiple Airglow Chemistry (MAC) model as minor species coupled with each other as well as with the ground states of O2 and O to represent the photochemistry in the upper Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere (MLT) region. The MAC model is proposed combining chemical processes of the well-known photochemical models related to identified O2 and O species and some additional processes. Concentrations of excited O2 and O species were retrieved using the MAC model on the basis of the multiple in-situ nightglow emissions measured during the Energy Transfer in the Oxygen Nightglow (ETON) rocket campaign. The proposed retrieval procedure to obtain concentrations of these MLT minor species is implemented avoiding a priori data sets. Unknown and poorly constrained reaction rates were tuned and reaction rates of the well-known models were updated with the MAC model comparing in-situ and evaluated emission profiles as well as in-situ and retrieved O concentration profiles. As a result, precursors of O2 and O species responsible for transitions considered in the MAC model are identified and validated by calculations with the MAC model.
