2022 Technology Preview - work in progress

  • Currently unreleased. This technology preview is targeting a 3.0 release.

  • Feature: Supports GEOS-Chem 14.0.0-rc.3, KPP 3.0.0-rc.3, and HEMCO 3.5.0.

  • Feature: Supports WRF version 4.4.

  • Feature: Infrastructure for specialty simulations. Now can install couplers for fullchem, ch4, and co2 using the install_registry command.

  • Feature: Compiles GEOS-Chem 13+ without using CMake by maintaining the legacy GNU infrastructure.

  • Feature: Auto-patching of wrf_io.F90 to support more than 3,000 variables in wrfbdy.

  • Feature: No longer inputs initial/boundary conditions for non-advected species through i0{12} switch in registry.chem.

  • Enhancement: Recompile no longer wipes configuration files by automatically calling make install_configs. Configuration files are installed once using make install_registry or others for specialty simulations.

  • Enhancement: New coupler species generation infrastructure shared with CESM2-GC.
