2018 Workplan

NEMO is a shared, sustainable, and state-of-the-art software for research and operational oceanography. Its development is defined in a yearly workplan.
The yearly work plan is based on the NEMO Development Strategy Version 2 : 2018-2022.

The next 2 sections describe the 2018 workplan.

Shared Actions

Shared Actions contains the workplan's core: the development priorities for all NEMO consortium's institutions which are expected to be directly related to the long term goals.

            #2010 HPC-03_Mocavero_globcomm francesca 2018 release-4.0 The analysis on global communications has been updated on the trunk and the development branch has been created. A list of communications that can be safely removed is reported in the "Implementation plan" section. They will be removed in the development branch and the ticket will be closed by the end of this year. The development branch has been aligned to the current version of the trunk (trunk@rev10279). Global communications listed in the implementation plan section (points 1-5) have been removed. Sette tests have been successfully executed. Removed global communications do not change results. yes

            #2030 VALID-06_storkey_global validation of proto-NEMO 4.0 release in ORCA1, ORCA025 and ORCA12 davestorkey 2018 release-4.0 I have completed 30-year CORE2-forced integrations for ORCA1 and ORCA025 based on rev 9490 of the dev_merge_2017 branch. There are significant science differences between these configurations and our standard NEMO 3.6 configurations (different sea ice model, currently no internal wave mixing in NEMO 4 configurations), so one would expect different results, but the results look sensible and the differences are where you would expect them given the science differences.
            #2028 VALID-07_odea-AMM deazer 2018 release-4.0 The AMM15 configuration was tested initially with revision 9356. The configuration ran ok for 6 months but had a problem with the boundary conditions using the zerograd option. With this removed the model has been run successfully for 2 years with sensible looking model fields. The model was also run in WAD successfully for 2 year integration, and some further modification to stop SBC fluxes in dry areas lead to sensible fields. It was not reproducible at this revision in terms of different processor decompositions. Currently testing revision before the code was reorganized as rose suites need considerable updating to work wit the reorganized code. Revision 9490 is being integrated (currently 4 months) as before. It is still not perfectly reproducible across different processor decompositions but the differences are much smaller then at revision 9356.
