GEOS-Chem High Performance Working Group
Welcome to the GEOS-Chem High Performance (GCHP) Working Group wiki page! GCHP represents the next generation of GEOS-Chem with a distributed memory capability enabling efficient scaling across many cores and finer resolution simulations. GCHP also has the advantage of using a cubed-sphere geometry enabling more accurate transport and eliminating the polar singularity inherent to lat-lon grids.
If you are interested in working with or contributing to GCHP development, please subscribe to the GCHP Working Group email list following the instructions below and send an email introducing yourself. We also encourage you to your platform and operation system as well as a description of your project in the tables on this page.

GCHP User Reports
If you are using GCHP, whether for a scientific project or simply to test out on your local system, please share your successes here. We also encourage you to join the GCHP Slack channel to connect with other users. Please report any bugs you find to the GEOS-Chem Support Team so that we can add them to the GCHP outstanding issues page.
To fill out this section, copy the template and fill out your information. You can add as many runs as you wish. Feel free to edit the tables to best suit the information you are trying to show.
