History collections for TransportTracers
The RadioNuclide Collection
The RadioNuclide collection contains diagnostic outputs from the TransportTracers simulation.
NOTE: Emissions of Rn and Be7 are archived to diagnostic output by HEMCO, and are thus not contained in this collection. For more information, please see the HEMCO diagnostics for the Rn-Pb-Be simulation below.
Here is a sample definition section for the RadioNuclide collection.
- If this collection is not already present in the HISTORY.rc file in the GEOS-Chem run directory for your selected simulation, you can copy and paste this into your HISTORY.rc file and edit accordingly.
- To prevent an individual field from being included in the diagnostic output, place a comment character # in front of the field name.
- Please see our Legend for History diagnostics page for more information about each of the collection tags.
