NOTE: The information on this page may be out of date. Please check the Dalhousie and Harvard FTP sites for the most recent data.

This page contains information about the data availability for GEOS-Chem nested grid simulations. We also invite you to visit the wiki page of the Nested Model Working Group, which is responsible for coordinating nested-grid simulations within the GEOS-Chem user community.

Overview

The Harvard group maintains an archive of GEOS meteorological data available to the GEOS-Chem community for ftp download. It includes standard operational GEOS data at 2° x 2.5° and 4° x 5° resolution, plus some special and nested products. There is increasing demand in the GEOS-Chem community for custom data sets of native-resolution (presently 0.5° x 0.667°) or special GEOS meteorological data. In the spirit of maintaining the successful grass-roots community approach of GEOS-Chem, users who do not find what they need in the Harvard archive should take it upon themselves to download and archive the GEOS data that they need, and then make these data available to the GEOS-Chem community.

For more information, please see this document about the GEOS-Chem data download protocol.

NOTES:

  1. If you are using a version of GEOS-Chem between v8-01-02 and v8-02-04, then there are some extra modifications that need to be made for the code in order to be able to run the North American nested grid simulations. Please see this document for more information.
  2. Lok Lamsal and Aaron van Donkelaar (Dalhousie) have completed the necessary modifications for the NA nested grid. These will be included in the standard code starting with GEOS-Chem v8-03-01.
