2012 NEMO Users meeting

The 2012 users meeting will take place in Exeter, United-Kingdom, at the Met Office on the 22nd and 23rd May.

As in previous years this meeting will cover a wide breadth of topics, ranging from coastal modelling to global modelling, both short range and long term forecasting, and will include ice modelling and biogeochemical modelling within NEMO.It is hoped this meeting will allowing users to share expertise, exchange information on the ongoing projects using NEMO, and learn about plans for future developments from the NEMO System Team.
