    33 === '''NOCS.2 - Review of new documentation'''   ===    
    34          '''Motivation:''' The exchange and proof-reading of new documentation  between system team sites before release should ensure consistency of style, readability and accuracy.[[BR]] 
    35          '''Status :''' Carried over from 2009 but expected to start as soon as new documentation is submitted.[[BR]]

    4052=== '''NOCS.3 — Revisit of mass and salt fluxes''' (end)  === 
    41    '''Motivation:''' As a consequence of the embedding of sea-ice into the ocean (see SB.4), the total mass of salt of the combined sea-ice/ocean system is conserved by removing a volume of water from the ocean when ice forms or adding a volume of water when it melts.  When ice forms, salt contained in the water is returned to the ocean, less the salt retained in the ice itself.  When ice melts, the salt contained is added back to the ocean.  [[BR]]

    4254   '''Status :''' Carried over from 2009 but work is well advanced. The required modifications in OPA, LIM2 and LIM3 have been performed and validated. [[BR]]

    5771=== '''NOCS.5 — Embedded CICE '''  ===   
    58    '''Motivation:'''  Similar changes ro B.3 and B.4 will have to be made in order to fully embed CICE-modelled sea-ice. Subtle differences and problems may arise because of the specificities of CICE. This work is listed separately to ensure that possible delays will not impact on the delivery of an embedded solution for LIM (v3.3) (NOCS team, 3wk)[[BR]] 
    59    '''Main task:'''  (3 wk) [[BR]] 
    60    (1) Achieve the validation, especially with respect to LIM3 (2 wk) [[BR]] 
    61    (2) Implementation in the trunk+ NVTK + documentation (1 wk)  v3.3 or v3.4 release.  This is dependent on the availability of the CICE-NEMO interface as supplied by the UKMO.[[BR]]

    76 === '''NOCS.7 — Improved Sea Ice thermodynamics'''   === 
    77    '''Motivation:'''  Enhancement of sea ice lateral melting paramerisations.[[BR]] 
    78    '''Main task:'''  (8 wk) [[BR]] 
    79    (1) Parameterisations of lateral melting processes will be incorporated including the effects of waves on fragmentation and melting. (8wk) [[BR]]

     92=== '''NOCS.7 —  Support for all ORCA configurations'''  ===  
    8493   '''Motivation:'''  A cleaning and enhancement of code support for global (ORCA) configurations is required to introduce configurations in common use across the community. [[BR]] 
    8594   '''Main task:'''  (4 wk) [[BR]] 
     
    8796   (2) The use of .h90 files will also be suppressed. (NOCS team, 4wk) [[BR]]

    91 === '''NOCS.9 —  time stepping of vertical diffusion'''  === 
     100=== '''NOCS.8 —  time stepping of vertical diffusion'''  === 
    92101   '''Motivation:'''  An improvement in the numerical treatment of vertical diffusion can be achieved by replacing the fully implicit scheme with a Crank-Nicholson scheme. This approach is widely used in other ocean models (e.g. ROMS, MARS...) and can be implemented relatively simply.[[BR]] 
    93102   '''Main task:'''  (1 wk) [[BR]] 
     
    95104   (2) A similar scheme will also be implemented for the bottom friction contribution to the barotropic momentum trend in dynspg_ts. (NOCS team, 1wk)[[BR]]

    99 === '''NOCS.10 —  Neptune effect'''  === 
     109=== '''NOCS.9 —  Neptune effect'''  === 
    100110   '''Motivation:'''  The Neptune effect (Holloway 1992) is a well established parameterisation of the interaction of eddies with topography. The parameterisation is often seen as essential in Arctic ocean simulations even in high resolution models. The improvments it provide to an ORCA1-LIM simulation is shown in Wang and Holloway (OM, 2009). [[BR]]

    108119=== '''NOCS.11 —  Implementation of spectral nudging'''   ===   
    109120   '''Motivation:'''  Work by our Canadian colleagues has demonstrated the potentail benefits of spectral nudging techniques to restore large scale gradients without suppressing meso-scale activity. [[BR]] 
    110    '''Main task''' (6 wk)[[BR]] 
    111    (1) The v2.3 solution will be obtained and implemented in the reference code (v3.4) (NOCS team, 6wk)[[BR]]
