The ConcAfterChem collection

The ConcAfterChem collection contains diagnostics for OH, HO2, etc. species immediately upon exiting the FlexChem solver.

Here is a sample definition section for the ConcAfterChem collection.

  • If this collection is not already present in the HISTORY.rc file in the GEOS-Chem run directory for your selected simulation, you can copy and paste this into your HISTORY.rc file and edit accordingly.
  • To prevent an individual field from being included in the diagnostic output, place a comment character # in front of the field name.
  • Please see our Legend for History diagnostics page for more information about each of the collection tags.

The Metrics collection

The Metrics collection contains diagnostics for computing OH metrics from a GEOS-Chem full chemistry simulation. To compute the OH metrics, you must run the Python script metrics.py that ships with each fullchem or CH4 run directory.

Here is a sample definition section for the JValues collection.

  • If this collection is not already present in the HISTORY.rc file in the GEOS-Chem run directory for your selected simulation, you can copy and paste this into your HISTORY.rc file and edit accordingly.
  • To prevent an individual field from being included in the diagnostic output, place a comment character # in front of the field name.

  • To prevent an individual field from being included in the diagnostic output, place a comment character # in front of the field name.
  • Other fields of the State_Chm object can be added to this collection by prefixing the field name with Chem_.
