GEOS-Chem Versions Page

This page includes information about GEOS-Chem 14.0.0 (currently under development).

Version overview

The following items have been added to GEOS-Chem 14.0.0 since the last GEOS-Chem version GEOS-Chem 13.4.0. Also see the following Github pages:

Feature Contributor(s) Model scope Notes and references
Updates that will affect full-chemistry benchmark simulations
Fix bugs causing differences when splitting up GC-Classic and GCHP simulations in time Lizzie Lundgren (GCST) Initialization
  • geoschem/geos-chem PR #1229
  • GCHP fullchem simulations now identical if broken up in time
  • Differences in GCClassic persist due to I/O precision limitation of HEMCO
Remove unnecessary met-fields from GCClassic restart file that caused incorrect initial meteorology Lizzie Lundgren (GCST) Restart files
Updates that will NOT affect full-chemistry benchmark simulations
Convert input.geos to geoschem_config.yml Bob Yantosca (GCST) Input files
Change 4D State_Chm%Species array to vector of 3D concentration arrays Lizzie Lundgren (GCST) Structural
Fix to save boundary conditions on first timestep Eloise Marais (UCL) Diagnostics
Updates that will only affect GCHP
Upgrade GMAO libraries in GCHP Liam Bindle (GCST)
Lizzie Lundgren (GCST)
Add option to use native GEOS-FP met fields in GCHP
  • Includes choice of mass fluxes or derived winds for advection
Liam Bindle (GCST) Met fields
Bug fixes for MEGAN HEMCO extension Lizzie Lundgren (GCST) Emissions

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.

1-month internal benchmarks

Each update that will introduce a significant change in the full-chemistry simulation is tagged with an alpha version in Git. For each of these alpha versions, the GCST runs an internal 1-month benchmark simulation to isolate the impact from that update.

For more details on the update(s) included in each alpha version and a link to benchmark results, see this Google sheet.
