CMCC.1 Improve TOP interface

Motivation: Improve coupling with other biogeochemical models (HadOCC, BFM, etc.). Add generic interfaces for surface and lateral boundary conditions for tracers (river input and atmospheric deposition).
Status : This interface has already been done for transport routines.
Main tasks : Port the interface used for transport routines to the surface and boundary condition routines currently used for T and S (in collaboration with INGV for rivers).

CMCC.2 Test dynamical allocation

Motivation: The ability to run NEMO at different spatial resolutions and to modify the number of processes without recompiling the code.
Status : To be started when the NEMO version 3.3 will be released.
Main tasks : Test of dynamic memory management improvement implemented by the HECTOR supercomputing centre. The test will be performed on both the NEC SX9 and IBM Power6 clusters available at the CMCC. During the test phase, the Mediterranean configuration (1/16°) will be added to the standard test configurations.

CMCC.3 Improve OBS and ASM

Motivation: Improve the OBS and ASM interfaces to nest with other data assimilation schemes, in particular Ocean Var? . Eventually add new observational operators.
Status : The existing OBS and ASM for the Nemo Var? will be used and adapted for the Ocean Var? scheme.
Main tasks : 1) Test the existing scheme with Ocean Var? ; 2) Make necessary modifications (new observational operators etc.)

CMCC.4 Check masks

Motivation: Advection of the rotational component of velocity should conserve the total energy and enstrophy.
Status : Masks will be checked to ensure the conservation of these two properties, and eventual modifications will be applied.
Main tasks : 1) Theoretical check of the conservation of energy and enstrophy with existing masks. 2) Modification of masks to ensure the conservation.
