The HISTORY.rc file

The HISTORY.rc file allows you to specify which diagnostic quantities will be archived to netCDF diagnostics (aka "History") in both GEOS-Chem "Classic" and GEOS-Chem with the High-Performance Option (aka GCHP).

For a detailed description of this file, please see the Sample HISTORY.rc diagnostic input file wiki section.

Please also see our Guide to GEOS-Chem History diagnostics for complete information about which diagnostics you can archive with the GEOS-Chem History component.

The Planeflight.dat file

The Planeflight.dat.YYYYMMDD files allow you to specify the diagnostic quantities (species, reaction rates, met fields) that you want to print out for a specific longitude, latitude, altitude, and time. See our Planeflight diagnostic wiki page for more information.

The ObsPack input file

Please see our our ObsPack diagnostic wiki page for more information about the format of ObsPack diagnostic input files.
