List of diagnostics archived to bpch format

From Geos-chem
Jump to: navigation, search

On this page we list the various diagnostic quantities that you can archive with GEOS-Chem. These diagnostic quantities are archived to "binary punch" (aka bpch) format.

NOTE: We are phasing out binary punch format output, and will replace it with netCDF output. This will probably happen in GEOS-Chem v11-03.

Contents

Overview

The tables below list the following parameters for each diagnostic that is archived to bpch format:

NDxx # The index for each slot of the given "NDxx" bpch diaggnostic.
Dims Diagnostics are usually 2-D or 3-D, with I,J,L for longitude, latitude and level indices.

N as a third or fourth dimension refers to the number of species that a diagnostic can carry.

Description A short overview of the given diagnostic.
Units The physical units of the given diagnostic quantity
Category The 8-character name used by GAMAP to reference a particular diagnostic field. Information about how to set the different flags in the input.geos file can be found in the Diagnostic Menu section of our GEOS-Chem Input Files wiki page.
Simulations A list of simulations for which this particular diagnostic is valid.

NOTE: all fullchem simulations are those that use one of the following full-chemistry mechanisms with the FlexChem/KPP solver:

  • benchmark
  • standard
  • tropchem
  • complexSOA
  • complesSOA_SVPOA
  • marinePOA
  • aciduptake
netCDF equivalent The name under which the same diagnostic is available as netCDF output (in GEOS-Chem v11-02 and higher). See the List of diagnostics archived to netCDF format wiki page for more information.

You can specify which diagnostic quantities you want to archive by modifying the various menus of the input.geos file, which is contained in your the GEOS-Chem run directory. The relevant menus of input.geos are:
