Overview

The charge of the GEOS-Chem Steering Committee (GCSC) is to:

  1. Develop long-term strategies for the model and for the functioning of the user community
  2. Prioritize and enable model development in consultation with the GEOS-Chem Working Groups (WGs)
  3. Review model benchmarks and monitor the integrity and traceability of the model.
