    107ocean related engines for oceanographic research, operational oceanography, seasonal forecast and

    1516- :rstblue:`OPA` is fundamental to all users by modelling the ocean [thermo]dynamics and  
    16   solving the primitive equations; 
    17 - :rstgrey:`LIM` for sea-ice simulates ice [thermo]dynamics, brine inclusions and  
    18   subgrid-scale thickness variations; 
    19 - :rstgreen:`TOP-PISCES` models biogeochemistry with TOP for  
    20   the on/offline oceanic tracers transport and PISCES for the biogeochemical processes. 
     17  solving the primitive equations         (``./src/OCE``);  
     18- :rstgrey:`SI`\ :rstgreysup:`3` for sea-ice simulates ice [thermo]dynamics, brine inclusions and  
     19  subgrid-scale thickness variations      (``./src/ICE``);  
     20- :rstgreen:`TOP-PISCES` models biogeochemistry with TOP for the on/offline oceanic tracers transport and  
     21  PISCES for the biogeochemical processes (``./src/MBG``).

    22 These physical engines are described in their respective `reference publications`_. 
     23These physical engines are described in their respective reference publications that must be cited for  
     24any work related to their use. 
    2325 
    24 They are complemented by a 2-way nesting software (AGRIF_) and  
    25 a versatile data assimilation interface with 3 different modules 
    26 (linear-tangent TAM, observational operators OBS, and increment ASM). 
     26Applications and capabilities

    29 Applications 
    30 ------------ 
     29Not only does the NEMO framework model the ocean circulation, 
     30it offers various features to enable 
    3131 
    32 | Distributed under CeCILL license (GNU GPL compatible - see ``LICENSE``),  
    33   the framework offers several builtins reference configurations to  
    34   check your computing architecture and evaluate the model skills and performances (``./cfgs``). 
    35 | The end user could also find some idealized test cases on the web to serve as examples and  
    36   to study particular processes. 
     32- 2-way nesting package `AGRIF`_ to create embedded zooms seamlessly 
     33- Flexible biogeomchemistry with online coarsening and possible integration of a customized model  
     34- Versatile data assimilation interface with 3 different modules 
     35  (tangent linear, observational operators and increments) 
    3736 
    38 A set of tools is also provided to setup your own configuration and  
    39 [pre|post]process your data (``./tools``). 
     37lation a efficient XIOS_ server for outputing diagnostics a coupled via OASIS_ to alternative components or other models to enable Earth system modelling. 
    4038 
    41 ------- 
    42 Options 
    43 ------- 
     39| Several builtins configurations are provided to assess the skills and performances of the model which 
     40   can be used as templates for setting up a new configuration (``./cfgs``). 
     41| The end user could also find some idealised test cases on the web to serve as examples and 
     42   to study particular processes (``./tests``). 
    4443 
    45 For writing diagnostics in a efficient way, NEMO make use of XIOS_ server which  
    46 controlled the outputs using XML input file. 
     44A set of tools is also provided to setup your own configuration and [pre|post]process your data (``./tools``). 
    4745 
    48 To enable Earth system modelling, NEMO can be interfaced via  
    49 OASIS_ coupleur to external components such as atmospheric models or  
    50 alternative models of sea-ice or biogeochemistry.

     49| The NEMO reference manual and a quick start guide can be generated from Latex and RST source code files 
     50   (``./doc``), either in PDF or in HTML format, but it might require some additional installations. 
     51| In any case, both formats are available online: `HTML`_ | `PDF`_

    56 The NEMO reference manual can be generated from the LaTeX source code (``./doc``),  
    57 either in PDF or in HTML format, but it mights require some additionnal installations. 
     53| Since 2014 the project has a `Special Issue`_ in the Geoscientific Model Development (GMD) open-access journal 
     54   from the European Geosciences Union (EGU). 
     55   The main scope is to collect relevant manuscripts which cover a wide variety of topics like 
     56   process studies, new parameterizations, implementation of new model features and new NEMO configurations. 
     57| Also it provides a single portal to search, discover and understand about 
     58   the NEMO modelling framework potential and evolution and to submit their contributions.
