2019 Workplan

The NEMO development is planned on a yearly basis relying on the NEMO Development Strategy document, which designs the long term evolution (5 to 10 years) in both scientific and engineering aspects.

Shared actions

The 2019 workplan is made up of shared actions which are the development priorities for all consortium's institutions.

(dynamical core)




(tracers and biogeochemistry)


Air-Sea interactions

(nesting tools and zooms)

Work has begun on a range of approaches to reduce the too-deep winter mixed layers. a. Reduction in the effectiveness of the Langmuir mixing in cases where the ratio of the Stokes penetration depth to the boundary layer depth is small. and b. Reduction in effectiveness of shear-turbulent, Langmuir and convective deepening when the respective eddy turnover timescales (hbl/u* etc.) approach the inertial timescale 1/f.
