On this page we list the current priorities for GEOS-Chem development. This list is continuously updated based on code readiness and input from the [https://geos-chem.seas.harvard.edu/geos-working-groups Working Groups] and the [https://geos-chem.seas.harvard.edu/geos-steering-cmte Steering Committee]. For history of past releases see the [[GEOS-Chem_versions|GEOS-Chem Versions wiki page]].

Features listed in this table are actively being integrated into GEOS-Chem by the [https://geoschem.github.io/support-team.html GEOS-Chem Support Team]. In addition, we continuously implement structural updates in the model to maintain and develop coupling with other models including GEOS, CESM, and the model adjoint.

Latest revision as of 17:35, 6 December 2023

On this page we list the current priorities for GEOS-Chem development. This list is continuously updated based on code readiness and input from the Working Groups and the Steering Committee. For history of past releases see the GEOS-Chem Versions wiki page.

Merged and awaiting release

See the links below for items merged and awaiting release.

Mergeable at any time Version in development
