    Precise the needs on their application. Involved in defining priorities in workplan


    List of past/current/planned applications of NEMO with AGRIF (with associated publications):

    1) Applications in GEOMAR-Kiel (Germany)

    Agulhas current, etc). There are probably 15 papers or so (including Biastoch et al, Nature, 2008 and 2009). The best would be to ask the complete list from Arne Biastoch (if we need it in the prospective document).

    2) Applications in France
