Summary:

Action Brief description Status Branch name Trac ticket n° Wiki page name Reviewer(s) Review status Nb of weeks Ready for merge. If "NO", reason and status for 2014
INGV-1 Continuation of Surface Pressure effect developments in limited area model started in 2012 dev_r3389_INGV1+atmpres 968 wiki:ticket/968?
INGV-2 NEMO model reliability wiki:INGV-Basic-Reliability-tests

Notes on "unfinished/not started" or complited actions of 2013 work plan:
INGV-1 the work did not start because there is the need to have a stable version of the new BDY code.
INGV-2 Basic tests performed. Conservation Box, Sea Mountain and realistic test case (Northern Adriatic Sea) with homogenious T and S to check numerical noise propagation. No impact on the code but a wiki page that need to be finalized. INGV-3 not performed lacking of time and need to prioritize
INGV-4 Coordination of the wave working Group. WG members established and 2 web meeting organized.
INGV-5 participation to the preliminary steps
INGV-6 complited


INGV.1 — Continuation of Surface Pressure effect developments in limited area model

Motivation: Once the OBC-BDY merging will be completed and new developments can start, INGV would like to implement a new Volume/Mass? constraint for the filtered free-surface. Actual version of the NEMO code forces, in case of filtered free surface, the total volume to be conserved each time-step. INGV proposes to control the mass exchange through the lateral open boundaries using a generalized Flather lateral boundary condition. During this year INGV proposes a deep Study of model response and sensitivity to time-splitting and filtered free surface with and without the atmospheric pressure forcing. Producing a Peer-reviewed manuscript or NEMO-technical report

Status: Preliminary test already done
Main tasks: Recode according consortium rules; ensure compatibility between filtered free-surface / volume conservation and new mass fluxes through lateral open boundaries

INGV.3 — River lateral open boundary conditions

Motivation: A proper representation of river volume inflow. In case of large runoff, including the river effects only in the surface water balance (Evaporation minus Precipitation minus runoff/area) could limit the model capability in reproducing the dynamics in the Region Of Fresh water Influence (ROFI). An open lateral boundary condition with a vertical current profile is preferable. However the full functionality of BDY module should allows to include rivers as LOBC. FIrst step will be to investigate this possibility and evaluate the need for further developments.

INGV.4 — Wave-current interaction

Motivation: full coupling of a wave model with NEMO.In two steps:

  1. Step1. By the end of 2012. Linear superposition of the Stokes velocity field, computed from an offline wave model, with circulation velocity from OGCM.
    Th study of this particular issue indicates the need to finalize the discussion before prooceede with any new implementation, INGV will lead the wave-coupling WG in the NEMO system team promoting the discussion.

INGV.5 — Participate to the Confioguration Manager WG.

Motivation: During the annual meeting the need to have a flexible and scientifically valid tool to configure new model set-ip has been identified. INGV will actively partipiate to this WG. .

INGV.6 — Atmospheric forcing at the land-ocean interface

Motivation: Masking of atmospheric fields over land is crucial in coastal or near-coastal areas, in order to avoid spurious fluxes due to the wrong usage of “land” values from the coarse atmospheric model when spatial interpolation is required.
