Front page edition, cleaning in custom LaTeX commands and add index for single subfile compilation

  • Use \thanks storing cmd to refer to the ST members list for 2018 in an footnote on the cover page
  • NEMO and Fortran in small capitals
  • Removing of unused or underused custom cmds, move local cmds to their respective .tex file
  • Addition of new ones (\zstar, \ztilde, \sstar, \stilde, \ie, \eg, \fortran, \fninety)
  • Fonts for indexed items: italic font for files (modules and .nc files), preformat for code (CPP keys, routines names and namelists content)

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.
