2022 Technology Preview - work in progress
Currently unreleased. This technology preview is targeting a 3.0 release with GEOS-Chem 14.1.0.
Feature: Supports GEOS-Chem 14.1.1, KPP 3.0.0, and HEMCO 3.6.2.
Feature: Supports WRF version 4.4.
Feature: Infrastructure for specialty simulations. Now can install couplers for fullchem, ch4, and co2 using the
Feature: Compiles GEOS-Chem 13+ without using CMake by maintaining the legacy GNU infrastructure.
Feature: Auto-patching of
wrf_io.F90to support more than 3,000 variables in
Feature: No longer inputs initial/boundary conditions for non-advected species through
Enhancement: Recompile no longer wipes configuration files by automatically calling
make install_configs. Configuration files are installed once using
make install_registryor others for specialty simulations.
Enhancement: New coupler species generation infrastructure shared with CESM2-GC.
Enhancement: Support for
QV2Mmet field for online blowing snow emissions.
Bugfix: Fix stack corruption issue in
Bugfix: More robust support for
get_last_gasdue to WRFv4 upstream updates.
