     274\label{MISC_config_AMM} 
     275 
     276The AMM, Atlantic Margins Model, is a regional model covering the 
     277Northwest European Shelf domain on a regular lat-lon grid at 
     278approximately 12km horizontal resolution. The key \key{amm\_12km} 
     279is used to create the correct dimensions of the AMM domain. 
     280 
     281This configuration tests several features of NEMO functionality specific 
     282to the shelf seas. 
     283In particular, the AMM uses $S$-coordinates in the vertical rather than 
     284$z$-coordinates and is forced with tidal lateral boundary conditions 
     285using a flather boundary condition from the BDY module (key\_bdy). 
     286The AMM configuration  uses the GLS (key\_zdfgls) turbulence scheme, the 
     287VVL non-linear free surface(key\_vvl) and time-splitting 
     288(key\_dynspg\_ts). 
     289 
     290In addition to the tidal boundary condition the model may also take 
     291open boundary conditions from a North Atlantic model. Boundaries may be 
     292completely ommited by removing the BDY key (key\_bdy). 
     293Sample surface fluxes, river forcing and a sample initial restart file 
     294are included to test a realistic model run. The Baltic boundary is 
     295included within the river input file and is specified as a river source. 
     296Unlike ordinary river points the Baltic inputs also include salinity and 
     297temperature data.
