GEOS-Chem participation in community intercomparisons
GEOS-Chem v11-02-final will also carry the designation GEOS-Chem 12.0.0. We are migrating to a purely numeric versioning system in order to adhere more closely to software development best practices. For a complete description of the new versioning system, please see our GEOS-Chem version numbering system wiki page.
On this page we provide information about the use of GEOS-Chem in community model intercomparison projects.
Table of intercomparisons using GEOS-Chem results
If you have used GEOS-Chem results in a model intercomparison study, we invite you to add your information to the table below.
