`NEMO`_ for *Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean* is a state-of-the-art modelling framework for
research activities and forecasting services in ocean and climate sciences.

   :local:

Overview
========

The NEMO ocean model has 3 major components:

- |OPA| models the ocean [thermo]dynamics and solves the primitive equations
  (``./src/OCE``) :cite:`NEMO_manual`;
- |SI3| simulates ice [thermo]dynamics, brine inclusions and subgrid-scale thickness variations
  (``./src/ICE``) :cite:`SI3_manual`;
- |TOP| models the [on|off]line oceanic tracers transport and the biogeochemical processes
  (``./src/MBG``) :cite:`TOP_manual`.

These physical core engines are described in their respective <reference publications> that must be cited for
any work related to their use.

Applications and capabilities
=============================

Not only does the NEMO framework model the ocean circulation,
it offers various features to enable

- Create :doc:`embedded zooms <zooms>` seamlessly with 2-way nesting package `AGRIF`_.
- :doc:`Low cost biogeochemistry <coarsening>` and :doc:`alternative model opportunity <tracers>`.
- Versatile :doc:`assimilation <assimilation>`.
- :doc:`Output diagnostics <diagnostics>` with `XIOS`_ server.
- :doc:`Coupling <coupling>` via `OASIS`_ for Earth system modelling.

| Several :doc:`builtins configurations <configurations>` are provided to assess the skills and performances of
   the model which can be used as templates for :doc:`setting up a new configuration <setup>` (``./cfgs``).
| The end user could also find some :doc:`idealised test cases <test_cases>` online to serve as templates and
   to study particular processes (``./tests``).

A set of :doc:`utilities <tools>` is also provided to [pre|post]process your data (``./tools``).

Since 2014 the project has a `Special Issue <http://www.geosci-model-dev.net/special_issue40.html>`_ in
the open-access journal Geoscientific Model Development (GMD) from the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
The main scope is to collect relevant manuscripts covering various topics and to provide a single portal to
assess the model potential and evolution.

Used by a wide audience, numerous :website:`associated projects <projects>` have been carried out and
extensive :website:`bibliography <bibliography/publications>` published.

Community development
=====================

| The NEMO Consortium pulling together 5 European institutes (`CMCC`_, `CNRS`_, `MOI`_, `Met Office`_ and `NERC`_)
   plans the sustainable development in order to keep a reliable evolving framework since 2008.
| It defines the |NEMO strategy|_ which is implemented by the System Team on
   a yearly basis in order to release a new version almost every four years.

.. |NEMO strategy| replace:: multi-year development strategy

When the need arises, :forge:`working groups <wiki/WorkingGroups>` are created or resumed to
gather the community expertise for advising on the development activities.
