This page includes information about GEOS-Chem 13.2.1 which is currently in development.

Version overview

The following items have been added to GEOS-Chem 13.2.1 since the last benchmark for GEOS-Chem 13.2.0. See also the 13.2.1 milestone on Github.

Feature Contributor(s) Model scope Notes
Updates that will affect full-chemistry simulations
Retire tropchem simulation as an option Melissa Sulprizio (GCST) Structural
  • NOTE: Users can still choose between simulations with 72 or 47 vertical levels
Bug fix: Make sure JvalO3O1D and JValO3O3P diagnostic arrays are zeroed in flexchem_mod.F90 Haipeng Lin (Harvard)
Lizzie Lundgren (GCST))
  • NOTE: This update will cause JvalO3O1D and JvalO3O3P plots to differ w/r/t previous versions, but will not affect benchmark metrics such as mean OH concentration, MCF lifetime, etc.
Updates that will not affect full-chemistry simulations
Planeflight diagnostic bug fixes: Tess Carter (MIT)
Bob Yantosca (GCST)
Fixed typo in gc_grid_mod.F90 that caused a regridding error in nested-grid simulations Lizzie Lundgren (GCST)
Bob Yantosca (GCST)
Grids Also see:
Enable nested-grid integration testing with the following updates:



Bob Yantosca (GCST) Nested-grid &
Add WashU data server to GCHP data download script Liam Bindle (WashU) Data download
Update the script to read global settings from a YAML file Bob Yantosca (GCST) Data download
Bug fix: Halt simulation if Restart.frequency does not match Restart.duration in HISTORY.rc (for GEOS-Chem Classic only) Bethany Sutherland (NCST)
Bob Yantosca (GCST)
Bug fixes for nested-grid simulations: Bob Yantosca (GCST)
Eloise Marais (UCL)
Nested Grids
Bug fixes for Hg simulation: Harriet Gounia (Wollongong)
Jenny Fisher (Wollongong)
Bob Yantosca (GCST)
Colin Thackray (Harvard)
Hg simulation
Run directory updates for GEOS-Chem in GEOS Christoph Keller (GMAO)
Lizzie Lundgren (GCST)
Updates that will only affect GCHP
Bug fix for vertical scale factors in ExtData.rc Seb Eastham (MIT)
Melissa Sulprizio (GCST)
Config files
Bug fix for better error messages if GCHP throws an error during set up Liam Bindle (WashU) MAPL Also see:
NetCDF read errors now print an error message that includes the offending file's path and a description of the error Liam Bindle (WashU) MAPL Also see:
Minor GCHP run directory updates Lizzie Lundgren (GCST) Rundir creation

New data directories

The following data directories have been added or updated in this version. You will have to download the directories relevant to your simulation.

Inventory Type What was added? Directory
HEMCO/SAMPLE_BCs/v2021-07 Optional Sample boundary condition files for testing nested-grid simulations (currently: fullchem, CH4) HEMCO/SAMPLE_BCs/v2021-07
