13  The ocean engine of NEMO (Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean) is a primitive equation model adapted to
14  regional and global ocean circulation problems.
15  It is intended to be a flexible tool for studying the ocean and its interactions with
16  the others components of the earth climate system over a wide range of space and time scales.
17  Prognostic variables are the three-dimensional velocity field, a non-linear sea surface height,
18  the \textit{Conservative} Temperature and the \textit{Absolute} Salinity.
19  In the horizontal direction, the model uses a curvilinear orthogonal grid and in the vertical direction,
20  a full or partial step $z$-coordinate, or $s$-coordinate, or a mixture of the two.
21  The distribution of variables is a three-dimensional Arakawa C-type grid.
22  Various physical choices are available to describe ocean physics, including TKE, and GLS vertical physics.
23  Within NEMO, the ocean is interfaced with a sea-ice model (LIM or CICE),
24  passive tracer and biogeochemical models (TOP) and,
25  via the OASIS coupler, with several atmospheric general circulation models.
26  It also support two-way grid embedding via the AGRIF software.
