  • Comment \label commands on maths environments for unreferenced equations and adapt the unnumbered math container accordingly (mainly switch to shortanded LateX syntax with \[ ... \])
  • Add a code trick to build subfile with its own bibliography
  • Fix right path for main LaTeX document in first line of subfiles (\documentclass[...]{subfiles})
  • Rename abstract_foreword.tex to foreword.tex
  • Fix some non-ASCII codes inserted here or there in LaTeX (\[0-9]*)
  • Made a first iteration on the indentation and alignement within math, figure and table environments to improve source code readability

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