Summary: List here actions of the institution so as contributions to shared actions

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 2015
NOC-1 Refinement of Griffies operator
NOC-2 Testing, validation and commissioning of recent major changes
NOC-3 System simplification
NOC-4 On-line vertical interpolation of BDY data and related configuration manager options

NOC-1 - Refinement of Griffies operator

Motivation: Improvements to the computation of properties along isopycnal slopes and a full investiagtion into opportunities for optimising performance
Status : xx
Main tasks : Add algorithmic improvements. Profile performance on at least two architectures. Investigate bottlenecks and look for generic improvements in performance that can be made without compromising code readability.
Science Reviewer: George Nurser

Deadline: Aug 2014

Principal Investigator : Andrew Coward

NOC-2 - Testing, validation and commissioning of recent major changes

Motivation: NOCS is responsible for several recent additions which need more thorough testing to establish them as acceptable default options. These are: a. The Griffies operator; b. Z-tilde verical coordinate and c. Ice embedding. A major component of the NOC 2014 work-plan will be to test these options both individually and in concert in demanding global configurations.
Status : xx
Main tasks : Set up test cases with ORCA1, ORCA025 and ORCA0083. Perform multi-centennial tests with ORCA1; multi-decadal tests with ORCA025 and high-variability tests (e.g. tides) with ORCA0083. Document recommeneded settings and results.

NOC-3 - System simplification

Motivation: As a first step towards system simplification unused options will be removed and the non-linear free surface will become the default.
Status : xx
Main tasks : Remove the unrecommended Neptune options. Add thickness weighted tendency calculations as default. Make the non-linear free surface the default.

NOC-4 - On-line vertical interpolation of BDY data and related configuration manager options

Motivation: An online vertical interpolation for BDY inputs is needed to allow easy switching between vertical coordinate systems without the need to alter input boundary files.
Status : xx
Main tasks : Implement an on-line vertical interpolation of BDY inputs. Test thoroughly in, at least, the AMM configuration. Ensure the vertical interpolation schemes are generic and modular enough to also be used in the configuration manager tools and add this functionality to these tools. Document and record test cases.
