UKMO.1 — CF compliance of all NEMO NetCDF outputs (v3.3)

Motivation: Useful for post-processing applications that assume CF-compliance
Status : Nearly done.
Main tasks : (2 wk) - v3.3
(1) Need to put CF-standard names in IOM XML file .
(2) See if we can give user control over which XML file to use.
Principal Investigator : Ian Culverwell (ian.culverwell@…)

UKMO.2 — Providing capability to run NEMO with CICE (v3.4)

Motivation: Useful for comparing sensitivity to different sea ice models
Status : Dependent on LIM3 work (see A.5 above).
Main tasks : (4 wk)
(1) Add code to allow running of NEMO-CICE stand-alone model. (2w)
(2) Allow sbccpl interface to work with CICE (particularly multi-category fields). (2w)
Principal Investigator : Chris Harris (christopher.harris@…)

UKMO.3 — Providing OBS and ASM functionality (v3.4)

Motivation: Allows NEMOVAR to be run as well as using the tools for validation
Status : Some work done; further developments on-going.
Main tasks : (10 wk)
(1) Make branches of NEMO so that the NEMOVAR version of OBS and ASM code are split up and made separate to any other changes.
(2) Update the OBS and ASM branches from vn3.0 to the latest Paris trunk version.
(3) Run the standard NVTK tests.
(4) Supply the OBS and ASM code to NEMO systems team.
(5) Develop test environments for OBS and ASM.
(6) Collate documentation for OBS and ASM and pass to systems team.
(7) Help coordinate developments to the IAU code so that the changes from Charles-Emmanuel Testut go into the NEMO base code.
(8) Add ability to ingest drifter data to the OBS for validation purposes
Principal Investigator : Matt Martin (matthew.martin@…)

UKMO.4 — Mixed laplacian-bilaplacian diffusion (v3.3)

Motivation : Addition of a mixed laplacian/bilaplacian lateral diffusion on momentum scheme. Also allowing the choice of neither scheme for testing purposes.
Status : Code written and running at vn3.0.
Main tasks : (1 wk)
(1) Update to latest version of NEMO.
(2) Finalise testing of mixed scheme and return to trunk with testing and documentation.
Principal Investigator : Ed Blockley (ed.blockley@…)
Deadline : 1st June 2010
Potential Science Reviewer : Rachid Benshila Potential System Reviewer : Rachid Benshila
Priority :

UKMO.6 — BDY updates (v3.3)

Motivation: Upgrade to include ice and complete documentation
Status : Nearly done.
Main tasks : (? w)
(1) Finalise coding and upgrade to include ice and passive tracers.
(2) Test, NVTK and submit documentation for v3.4.
Principal Investigator : Dave Storkey (dave.storkey@…)

UKMO.7 — Horizontal Pressure Gradient scheme (v3.3)

Motivation: Upgrade to include pressure jacobian scheme
Status : Nearly done.
Main tasks : (? w)
(1) Finalise testing in real-world configuration.
(2) NVTK + documentation for v3.4.
Principal Investigator : Hedong Liu (heua@…) Enda O'Dea (enda.odea@…)

UKMO.10 — GODAE metrics (v3.3)

Motivation: Test the meridional heat transport and overturning circulation diagnostic of the GODAE metrics
Status : Code working in 3.0 but still requires some tidying up and updating to 3.2.
Main tasks : (1 w)
(1) In collaboration with Mercator decide on a final version of metrics for inclusion
Principal Investigator : Catherine Guiavarc'h (catherine.guiavarch@…) Deadline : 1st October 2010 Priority: Low
Science Reviewer : Clement Bricaud
System Reviewer : Rachid Benshila '

UKMO.12 — Atmospheric Pressure Forcing (v3.3)

Motivation: Ensure NEMO applies atm pressure changes correctly
Status : Working, needs feeding back.
Main tasks : (1 w)
(1) update present scheme used at Met Office to be more widely usable (2) Submit to trunk with docs
Principal Investigator : Alex Arnold (alex.arnold@…) Deadline : 1 October 2010
Priority: Medium
Science Reviewer : Jerome Chanut
System Reviewer : Rachid Benshila

UKMO.13 — Atlantic Margin Model standard configuration (v3.4)

Motivation: Add an s-coordinate non-linear free surface configuration as a standard config for NVTK and general use
Status : Configuration being developed
Main tasks : (? w)
(1) Introduce the configuration in the trunk
(2) Add it to NVTK
Principal Investigator : Alex Arnold (alex.arnold@…)

UKMO.14 — NVTK upgrade (v3.3)

Motivation: Get NVTK working at UKMO. And with FCM for extract and build.
Status : NVTK doesn't work on IBM; FCM work not started
Main tasks : (8 w)
(1) Investigate feasibility of using FCM for extract and build (2) Get NVTK working on the Met Office IBM system
(3) If feasible, setup using FCM for extract and build - if not feasible we will advise Paris on restructuring required for it to be feasible
Principal Investigator : Richard Hill Deadline : '1 October 2010' Priority: High
Science Reviewer : Not required
System Reviewer : Rachid Benshila (TBC)
