MET OFFICE-1 - Biharmonic GM

Motivation: Biharmonic Gent-Mc Williams? may be useful for reducing noise in high resolution models (ORCA025 or higher). The scheme was developed my Malcolm Roberts & David Marshall.

MET OFFICE-2 - Investigate use of Zanna Scheme

Motivation: Laure Zanna (Oxford) has approached us to see if it is possible to include her parametrisation in NEMO. This could provide useful functionality for NEMO.

MET OFFICE-3 - Output diagnostic of in-situ temperature

Motivation: This is a useful diagnostic for model evaluation purposes
Status : This diagnostic is used in a Met Office branch but it's not certain whether it is fully consistent with NEMO's equation of state.
Main tasks : Check whether existing code is consistent with NEMO's equation of state. If it is tidy up code and test (possibly move calculation to EOS module). Otherwise rewrite in a consistent way in EOS module. Add field to iodef.xml files.

MET OFFICE-4 -

Motivation: In preparation for CMIP6 we have added functionality to run CICE with meltponds and multilayers. This should now be returned to the NEMO trunk.
Status : Branch currently exists but needs tidying before inclusion in trunk
Main tasks : Modify current branch to make sure that it works correctly without key_cice. Ensure that changes to sbccpl will not affect use of NEMO with other ice or atmosphere models (branch has been created for use with Met Office UM).

MET OFFICE-5 - Ocean tide water parametrisation

Motivation: This parametrisation allows to compute melt along vertical land ice face as tide water glacier (greenland) and ice shelf front. This is required to represent water masse properties into Greenland fjord. By the way it will allow to use ice shelf parametrisation and explicit ice shelf in the same run
Status: First implementation done based on the 3.6 stable
Main tasks: Need update, polishing and better integration (file name, directory …) and alsoclean the isf code to move the isf parametrisation from isf code to tide water glacier code
Science Reviewer: N. Jourdain (LGGE)
System Reviewer: J.M. Molines (LGGE)
Deadline: Nov. 2016
Priority: Low
Depends on:
Principal Investigator : Pierre Mathiot

MET OFFICE-7 - Suppression of global communications

Motivation: Global communications can be expensive for parallel computing
Status :
Main tasks : Met Office task will be to look at efficiency improvements in stp_ctl module.
Science Reviewer: Andrew Coward

Deadline:

Priority: High
Depends on:
Principal Investigator :
Tim Graham

MET OFFICE-8 - Removal of useless communications

Motivation: There are several halo updates in NEMO which may not be needed. These are slow for HPC so should be removed
Status :
Main tasks : Use a script to find all communications and test whether they can be safely removed. In consultation with the rest of the ST consider whether haloes should no longer be included in output files. This would mean that halo updates wouldn't be needed for diagnostics.
