Documentation of the Multitasked Tangent Linear and Adjoint Models of the Adiabatic Version of the NASA GEOS-2 GCM (Version 6.5)

Yan Yang, I. Michael Navon, Ricardo Todling

This document presents a description of the development of the tangent-linear and the adjoint models of the adiabatic version of the GEOS-2 GCM. The difference between this version and the GEOS-1 GCM, the development and validation of the tangent-linear and adjoint models and the multitasking of the two models are described along with illustrative examples.
