    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.
