We will be adding some more information here shortly. In the meantime, please see our Guide to GEOS-Chem diagnostics for more information about files that are generated by the various GEOS_Chem diagnostics.

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 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.

List of History output files by collection

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).

If not otherwise specified, you can assume that the collection was introduced in 12.0.0.
