GEOS-Chem can archive several different types of quantities to diagnostic output.  These diagnostics are used to assess how the model is performing. 
+
 
+
The tables below give a brief overview of the different diagnostics that are supported in GEOS-Chem.  These will be explained in more depth in subsequent chapters.

+
=== Currently-supported GEOS-Chem diagnostics ===
+
 
+
GEOS-Chem 12 and later versions currently can generate the following types of diagnostic output:

=== GEOS-Chem diagnostics that are being phased out ===
+
 
+
GEOS-Chem 12 currently supports these diagnostics. However, they will be phased out in GEOS-Chem 13.
