Configuration description

The C1D_PAPA configuration is a 1D model (one water column called NEMO1D, activated with cpp key key_c1d), located at the PAPA station 145W-50N ([[BR]]

NEMO1D is usefull to test vertical physics in NEMO (turbulent closure scheme, solar penetration, interaction ocean/atmosphere.,…) Size of the horizontal domain is 3x3 grid points.

This reference configuration uses a 75 vertical levels grid (1m at the surface), the GLS (key_zdfgls) turbulence scheme with K-epsilon closure and the CORE BULK formulae. The atmospheric forcing comes from ECMWF operational analysis with a modification of the long and short waves flux. This set has been rescaled at a frequency of 1h. 1 year is simulated in outputs, see below(June,15 2010 to June,14 2011)

This configuration is availaible for NEMO v3.6 and later.

Reffray et al, )
describes some tests on vertical physic using this configuration.
