  1. Minimum system requirements
  2. Downloading source code
  3. Downloading data directories
  4. Creating run directories
  5. Configuring runs
  6. Compiling
  7. Running
  8. Output files
  9. Visualizing and processing output
  10. Coding and debugging
  11. Further reading


On this page, we list the files that are generated by GEOS-Chem's various diagnostic packages.

History diagnostics output

The following files, which correspond to the default History diagnostic collections, will be created in the OutputDir/ folder in your GEOS-Chem run directory. You can prevent any of these files from being created by commenting out the collection name in the HISTORY.rc configuration file. You can also add your own new collections (i.e. requesting species concentrations for both time-averaged and instantaneous averaging modes) by updating HISTORY.rc. For more information, please see our Guide to GEOS-Chem History diagnostics.

In the table below, YYYYMMDD and hhmms corresponds to the simulation date and time at which the file was created. The z indicates UTC (sometimes called "Zulu" time).

HEMCO diagnostic ouptut

The HEMCO diagnostic output files will be created in the OutputDir/ folder in your GEOS-Chem run directory. For more information, please see our The HEMCO User's Guide: Diagnostics.

In the table below, YYYYMMDD and hhmms corresponds to the simulation date and time at which the file was created.
