Here is a description of the GEOS-Chem dry deposition scheme from several journal articles:
From Section 4 of Alexander et al :
Dry deposition velocities for sea-salt aerosols (and sulfate formed in sea-salt aerosols) are computed with the size-dependent scheme of Zhang et al.  integrated over each model size bin and accounting for hygroscopic growth as a function of relative humidity [Gerber, 1985]. Dry deposition velocities for all other species are computed with a standard resistance-in-series scheme based on Wesely  as described by Wang et al. .
From Section 2.4 of Bey et al :
Dry deposition of oxidants and water soluble species is computed using a resistance-in-series model based on the original formulation of Wesely  with a number of modifications [Wang et al 1998]. The dry deposition velocities are calculated locally using GEOS data for surface values of momentum and sensible heat fluxes, temperature, and solar radiation.
From Section 6 of Wang et al :
We use a resistance-in-series model [Wesely and Hicks, 1977] to compute dry deposition velocities of O3, NO2, HNO3, PANs and H2O2. The deposition velocity Vi for species i is computed as:
Vi = 1 / ( Ra + Rb,i + Rc,i )
where Ra is the aerodynamic resistance to transfer to the surface, Rb,i is the boundary resistance, and Rc,i is the canopy surface resistance. Ra and Rb,i are calculated from the GCM meteorological variables [Jacob et al 1993]. Surface resistances Rc,i are based largely on the canopy model of Wesely  with some improvements, including explicit dependence of canopy stomatal resistances on LAI [Gao and Wesely, 1995] and on direct and diffuse PAR within the canopy [Baldocchi et al, 1987]. The same radiative transfer model for direct and diffuse PAR in the canopy is used as in the formulation of isoprene emissions. Surface resistances for deposition to tropical rain forest and tundra are taken from Jacob and Wofsy  and Jacob et al , respectively. The surface resistance for deposition of NO2 is taken to be the same as that of ozone [Erisman & Pul, 1994; Kramm et al, 1995; Eugster and Hesterberg, 1996] and hence lower than specified by Wesely . Dry deposition of CO and hydrocarbons is negligibly small and not included in the model [Mueller and Brasseur, 1995].
Aerosol dry deposition
Havala Pye reexamined the code, and she found that there are three routines basically using the Zhang et al.(2001) scheme:
- AERO_SFCRSII: Aerodynamic resistance for seasalt tracers. Hygroscopic growth is accounted for. Implemented by Rokjin Park ~ 2004? Used for: SALA, SALC, SO4S, NITS
- DUST_SFCRSII: Aerodynamic resistance of dust aerosol tracers. No hygroscopic growth. Implemented by bec ~2005? Used for: DST1, DST2, DST3, DST4
- ADUST_SFCRSII: Aerodynamic resistance of non-size resolved aersosols. No hygroscopic growth. Based on DUST_SRFCRSII and activated by Pye 2007. Assume particle diameter is 0.5 microns, density is 1.5 g/cm3 (1500 kg/m3). Used for all other aerosols that are not listed above (aerosols are indicated by a T/F flag in INIT_DRYDEP called AIROSOL).
This was briefly mentioned in Pye et al. (2009) paper.

In GEOS-Chem v10-01 and higher versions
NOTE: This update was made to facilitate the implementation of both the HEMCO emissions component and FlexChem chemical solver.
In GEOS-Chem v10-01 and higher versions, the following changes were made to how dry deposition is applied:
- Dry deposition is now applied to all tracers in module
GeosCore/mixing_mod.F90. Prior to this, dry deposition had been applied in several locations throughout the code, which was confusing and prone to error.
- Dry deposition fluxes (i.e. category DRYD-FLX) are now archived to the ND44 diagnostic in module
GeosCore/mixing_mod.F90. Furthermore, drydep fluxes are now archived with units of
molec/cm2/sfor all GEOS-Chem simulations. In prior GEOS-Chem versions, some simulations (in particular Rn-Pb-Be) had archived drydep fluxes in units of
kg/s. Therefore, when analyzing output from GEOS-Chem v10-01 (or higher versions), please make sure to modify your plotting or budget programs to expect drydep fluxes in units of
DRYFLXRnPbBehave now been removed from module
GeosCore/drydep_mod.F. The equivalent functionality is now provided by

OVOCs dry deposition
These values were further changed as part of the new isoprene scheme. The most up-to-date values are on the new isoprene scheme page.
This update was tested in the 1-month benchmark simulation v9-01-03c and approved on 19 Dec 2011.
According to Karl et al.(2010), I changed the reactivity factor(f0) for all OVOCs from 0 to 1.

Notes: To run with non-local mixing, you don't need to modify globchem.dat with " MVK=DRYDEP+DRYMVK", because drydep here is done out of chemistry step. But you need to modify that for full mixing scheme, which is using chemical solver to calculate drydep.

Cold-temperature dry deposition updates
This update was included in GEOS-Chem 12.6.0, which was released on 18 Oct 2019.
Viral Shah implemented the following updates in drydep_mod.F:
- Set HNO3 bulk surface resistance to 1 s/m
- Limit increases in Rc at low temperature to a factor of 2
The reference for these updates is

Simple parameterization for CO2 dependence of stomatal resistance
This update was included in GEOS-Chem 12.6.0, which was released on 18 Oct 2019.
Anthony Wong and Amos Tai have developed code to apply CO2 effect on stomatal conductance according to Franks et a. (2013) equation. This feature is implemented as an option in the Deposition Menu of input.geos and is off by default:

Updates to dry deposition when using the Olson 2001 land map
This update was validated in the 1-month benchmark simulation GEOS-Chem v10-01a and approved on 05 Feb 2014.
- 1. Force the use of MODIS LAI from 2008 if the last year is beyond 2008. There is a large difference in the 2009 file that still needs to be investigated.
- In routine Init_Modis_Lai (modis_lai_mod.F90):
IF ( USE_OLSON_2001 ) THEN I_MODIS = 1440 ! For Olson 2001, use MODIS LAI J_MODIS = 720 ! on the 0.25 x 0.25 native grid MODIS_START = 2005 ! First year of MODIS data MODIS_END = 2008 ! Force to 2008 (skim, 1/29/14)

Updates to facilitate grid-independent operation
This update was tested in the 1-month benchmark simulation v9-01-03j and approved on 17 Apr 2012.
A number of structural updates were made to the dry deposition routines in order to remove bottlenecks that would have prevented grid-independent functionality. These include:
- Introduction of a new module to read Olson land map data from native resolution and to regrid to the currently-selected model resolution. The regridding is done in such a way so as to preserve backwards compatibility and to populate the existing arrays (
FRCLND) in the same manner as before.
- Introduction of a new module to read MODIS LAI data from native resolution and regrid to the current resolution in a consistent manner.
- Removal of obsolete variables:
- Replacement of obsolete ASCII input files with netCDF files.

Update dry deposition to use local surface pressure
This update was tested in the 1-month benchmark simulation v9-01-03d and approved on 12 Jan 2012.
Lyatt Jaeglé wrote:
- The only difference comes from the pressure value (
PRESSvariable) used in the dry deposition code to calculate the diffusivity of a molecule in air. Pressure comes into play in the mean free path calculation in
DIFFG. For some reason the pressure was set at a constant value of 1500hPa (I do not know why this value was chosen in the first place, any ideas?). When I was going over the dry deposition code for sea salt I had replaced this fixed value with local sea level pressure (SLP). I think that it makes sense to use the actual local pressure instead of this fixed value. The overall effect is small.

Aerosol dry deposition velocities over snow and ice surfaces
This update was tested in the 1-month benchmark simulation v9-01-02i and approved on 15 Aug 2011.
Modeled aerosol dry deposition velocities over snow and ice surfaces in the Arctic are much higher than estimated from measured values (e.g., Ibrahim et al. ; Duan et al. ; Nilsson and Rannik ). In GEOS-Chem v9-01-02 we have imposed a dry deposition velocity of 0.03 cm/s for all aerosols over snow and ice surfaces.
This update affects the following aerosol tracers: SO4s, NITs, DST1, DST2, DST3, DST4, SALA, SALC.

This update was validated with 1-month benchmark simulation v9-02d and approved on 19 Dec 2012.
As described in this wiki post, we have removed the module file

Previous issues that have now been resolved
Bug in computation of aerodynamic resistance RA
This fix was included in v11-02a and approved on 12 May 2017.
Brian Boys wrote:
In module GeosCore/drydep_mod.F, I discovered a bug in the subroutine DEPVEL. For the calculation of aerodynamic resistance RA under very stable atmospheric conditions (line 1811), the integration of the stability function phi_h (aka dimensionless vertical temperature gradient) from the roughness length to grid box center doesn't take into account the discontinuity occurring at z/L = 1 where phi_h switches from 1 + 5(z/L) to 5 + z/L (Holtslag, 1993). The result is too high of a value for the integral of phi_h and subsequently RA.
A straightforward solution is to calculate RA under stable conditions (L>0) using an integral form of the stability function, such as equation (12) of Holtslag, 1988. I implemented these changes in drydep_mod.F (from GCv 10-01, public release). To see the effect of the bug, namely a discontinuity in RA, refer to Figure 1, which plots RA as a function of stability (1/L).
I've also attached two scatter plots comparing outputted RA (GCv10-01, geosfp, 2x2.5, 2012/11/01) from the base model and an updated simulation employing the bug-fix as described above--please refer to Figure 2 (linear comparison):

Dependency between dry deposition and soil NOx emissions
This issue has been resolved in the new soil NOx algorithm that was added to GEOS-Chem v9-02. The new module
GeosCore/canopy_nox_mod.F computes the NOx from the canopy independently of the dry deposition module. We shall leave this post here for reference.
The canopy reduction algorithm (originally done in
GeosCore/canopy_nox_mod.F) has been moved to the HEMCO soil NOx extension module (
GeosCore/canopy_nox_mod.F was removed from GEOS-Chem v10-01 and higher versions.
In GEOS-Chem there is a code dependency between the dry deposition routines soil NOx emissions routines. This is purely historical baggage that goes back to the days of the old 9-layer Harvard-GISS CTM (from which these routines were taken).
The dry deposition routine
drydep_mod.f) computes a quantity called
CANOPYNOX, which is the bulk surface resistance of the canopy to NOx deposition. This is computed in the following lines of code:
C** Get the bulk surface resistance of the canopy, RSURFC, from the network C** of resistances in parallel and in series (Fig. 1 of Wesely ) DTMP1=1.D0/RIXX DTMP2=1.D0/RLUXX DTMP3=1.D0/(RAC(LDT)+RGSX) DTMP4=1.D0/(RDC+RCLX) RSURFC(K,LDT) = 1.D0/(DTMP1 + DTMP2 + DTMP3 + DTMP4) C Save the within canopy depvel of NOx, used in calculating the C canopy reduction factor for soil emissions. ! Remove hardwire for CANOPYNOX (bmy, 1/24/03) IF ( K == DRYDNO2 ) THEN CANOPYNOX(IJLOOP,LDT)=DTMP1+DTMP2+DTMP3+DTMP4 ENDIF
CANOPYNOX variable is not defined within
drydep_mod.f, but is found instead within the soil NOx emissions code header file
REAL*8 CANOPYNOX(MAXIJ,NTYPE) !track NOx within canopy dry dep.
and is then also used within the soil NOx emissions function
SOILCRF, as follows:
IF ((XLAI(IREF,JREF,K).GT.0.D0).AND. & (CANOPYNOX(IJLOOP,K).GT.0.D0))THEN VFNEW=VFNEW*SQRT(WINDSQR/9.D0*7.D0/XLAI(IREF,JREF,K))* * (SOILEXC(2)/SOILEXC(NN)) SOILCRF=CANOPYNOX(IJLOOP,K)/(CANOPYNOX(IJLOOP,K) * +VFNEW) ELSE SOILCRF=0.D0 END IF
This is not necessarily a problem as long as dry deposition is always turned on whenever you are doing a full-chemistry simulation that requires soil NOx emissions. In the driver routine
main.f, dry deposition is always done before emissions. However, this is bad coding style and a potential source of error. (This also must be corrected for the GEOS-Chem column code, in which all inputs must come thru the argument list.)
In the new soil NOx emissions code being developed by Rynda Hudman (much of which is based on the GEOS-Chem column code being developed by Bob Yantosca and Philippe Le Sager), there is a new module called
canopy_nox_mod.f. This module computes the
CANOPYNOX quantity independently of routine
drydep_mod.f, which allows for a totally clean separation between dry deposition routines and emissions routines.
At present, the new
canopy_nox_mod.f is not available in the standard mainline GEOS-Chem code. It is slated to be incorporated with the soil NOx emissions update.

Add extra variables to PRIVATE declaration in parallel loop
This fix was validated by 1-month benchmark simulation GEOS-Chem v9-02p (approved 13 Sep 2013).
We have explicitly added variable
IW to the
!$OMP+PRIVATE list in routine
GeosCore/drydep_mod.F. This should already be held private because it is a loop index, but it doesn't hurt to add it to the list.
We also have added
ZO as a PRIVATE variable when compiling with GCAP meteorology.
Old code: !$OMP+PRIVATE( DTMP1, DTMP2, DTMP3, DTMP4, VDS, CZH ) !$OMP+PRIVATE( CKUSTR, REYNO, CORR1, CORR2, Z0OBK, RA ) !$OMP+PRIVATE( DUMMY1, DUMMY2, DUMMY3, DUMMY4, DAIR, RB ) !$OMP+PRIVATE( C1X, VK, I, J ) New code: !$OMP+PRIVATE( DTMP1, DTMP2, DTMP3, DTMP4, VDS, CZH ) !$OMP+PRIVATE( CKUSTR, REYNO, CORR1, CORR2, Z0OBK, RA ) !$OMP+PRIVATE( DUMMY1, DUMMY2, DUMMY3, DUMMY4, DAIR, RB ) !$OMP+PRIVATE( C1X, VK, I, J, IW ) #if defined( GCAP ) !$OMP+PRIVATE( ZO ) #endif

Parallelization error in routine METERO
We discovered a minor bug in the parallel DO loop of routine METERO (in module GeosCore/drydep_mod.F):
! Loop over surface grid boxes !$OMP PARALLEL DO !$OMP+DEFAULT( SHARED ) !$OMP+PRIVATE( I, J, IJLOOP, THIK ) DO J = 1, JJPAR DO I = 1, IIPAR ! 1-D grid box index IJLOOP = ( (J-1) * IIPAR ) + I ! THIK = thickness of layer 1 [m] THIK = State_Met%BXHEIGHT(I,J,1) ! Midpoint height of first model level [m] CZ1(IJLOOP) = THIK / 2.0d0 ! Local surface pressure [hPa] (mpayer, 1/10/12) SP = GET_PEDGE(I,J,1) ! Convert from hPa to Pa for SFCPRESS PRESSU(IJLOOP) = SP * 1.d2
SP variable (which is surface pressure) had not been held PRIVATE in the above parallel loop. This caused slightly different surface pressure values to be saved into the
PRESSU array. Later on in the code,
PRESSU is passed as an argument to function
DIFFG, which computes the computes the molecular diffusivity of each drydep species. This in turn affects the value of the drydep velocity of each species. Therefore, as a result of this error, we would observe small numerical differences in the results of GEOS-Chem simulations when using OpenMP parallelization versus when OpenMP parallelization was turned off.
The fix is to add
SP to the PRIVATE list:
! Loop over surface grid boxes !$OMP PARALLEL DO !$OMP+DEFAULT( SHARED ) !$OMP+PRIVATE( I, J, IJLOOP, THIK, SP )
which then ensures that we obtain identical results whether or not OpenMP parallelization is turned on.

Remove obsolete ISN2 drydep species
This update was validated with the 1-month benchmark simulation v10-01i and approved on Approved 01 May 2015.
Katherine Travis wrote:
In dry deposition, we still have a dry dep option for ISN2. ISN2 was the nighttime isoprene nitrate in old versions of the chemistry, and ISN1 was the second generation product from this species. But now, we call ISN1 the isoprene nitrate species. So, we should replace IDTISN2 in dry dep and tracerid_mod with IDTISN1. That fix is also in the above directory.
In GeosCore/drydep_mod.F, we replaced these lines of code:
! ISN2 (uses same dep vel as HNO3) ELSE IF ( N == IDTISN2 ) THEN . . . NTRAIND(NUMDEP) = IDTISN2 . . . DEPNAME(NUMDEP) = 'ISN2'
! ISN1 (uses same dep vel as HNO3) ! This should be ISN1, krt (3/31/15) ELSE IF ( N == IDTISN1 ) THEN . . . NTRAIND(NUMDEP) = IDTISN1 . . . DEPNAME(NUMDEP) = 'ISN1'
and in GeosCore/tracerid_mod.F, we replaced these lines of code:
INTEGER :: IDISN2, IDR4N2, IDCH2O, IDC2H6, IDMP . . . INTEGER :: IDTPPN, IDTISN1, IDTR4N2, IDTPRPE, IDTC3H8 . . . IF ( NAMEGAS(I) == 'ISN2' ) IDISN2 = I . . . IDISN2 = 0

Fix for NO3 + ISOP product
This update was included in v11-02c and approved on 21 Sep 2017.
Katie Travis wrote:
- The nitrate isoprene nitrate is now called ISN1. It must be added to GEOS-Chem as a transported tracer to undergo dry deposition. We can use the molecular weight given to other isoprene nitrates of 147 g/mol. In addition, the references to ISN2 in drydep_mod.F and planeflight_mod.F (where the ANs are added up) should be changed to ISN1.
NOTE: We will add this fix after FlexChem is integrated into GEOS-Chem. Because FlexChem will completly remove SMVGEAR from GEOS-Chem, we shall add this fix into the KPP master equation file (instead of the SMVGEAR
None that we are aware of at this time.
