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 [http://acmg.seas.harvard.edu/geos/geos_working_groups.html Working Groups] and the [http://acmg.seas.harvard.edu/geos/geos_steering_cmte.html Steering Committee]. For history of past releases see the [[GEOS-Chem_versions|GEOS-Chem Versions wiki page]].

GEOS-Chem Main Page | GCHP Main Page

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.

Release schedule

Please see the GEOS-Chem Release Proposal outlining the procedure and schedule for releasing GEOS-Chem versions.

Merged and awaiting release

See the links below for items merged and awaiting release.
