     7NEMO for *Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean* is a state-of-the-art modelling framework, 
     8for research activities and forecasting services in ocean and climate sciences, 
     9developed in a sustainable way by a European consortium since 2008. 
     15The NEMO ocean model has 3 major components: 
     17- OPA models the ocean [thermo]dynamics and solves the primitive equations (``./src/OCE``) :cite:`NEMO_manual` 
     18- SI3 simulates ice [thermo]dynamics, brine inclusions and subgrid-scale thickness variations (``./src/ICE``) :cite:`SI3_manual` 
     19- TOP models the [on|off]line oceanic tracers transport and the biogeochemical processes (``./src/MBG``) :cite:`TOP_manual` 
     21These physical core engines are described in their respective `reference publications`_,that must be cited for any work related to their use. 
     23Assets and ready-to-use solutions 
     26Not only does the NEMO framework model the ocean circulation, 
     27it offers various features to enable 
     29- Create :doc:`embedded zooms <zooms>` seamlessly thanks to 2-way nesting package `AGRIF`_. 
     30- Opportunity to integrate an :doc:`alternative biogeochemistry model <tracers>` 
     31- Versatile :doc:`data_assimilation <data assimilation>`. 
     32- Generation of :doc:`diagnostics <diagnostics>` through effective `XIOS`_ server. 
     33- Roll-out Earth system modelling with :doc:`coupling interface <coupling>` to `OASIS`_. 
     35| Several :doc:`built-in configurations <configurations>` are provided to evaluate the skills and performances of 
     36        the model which can be used as templates for :doc:`setting up a new configuration <setup>` (``./cfgs``). 
     37| The end user could also find online some :doc:`idealised test cases <test_cases>` to serve as templates and 
     38        to study particular processes (``./tests``). 
     40A set of :doc:`utilities <tools>` is also provided to [pre|post]process your data (``./tools``).

     68Since 2014 the project has a `Special Issue <>`_ in 
     69the open-access journal Geoscientific Model Development (GMD) from the European Geosciences Union (EGU). 
     70The main scope is to collect relevant manuscripts covering various topics and to provide a single portal to 
     71assess the model potential and evolution. 
     73Used by a wide audience, numerous :website:`associated projects <projects>` have been carried out and 
     74extensive :website:`bibliography <bibliography/publications>` published. 
     76Collaborative development 
     79| The NEMO Consortium pulling together 5 European institutes (CMCC_, CNRS_, MOI_, Met Office_ and NERC_) 
     80        plans the sustainable development in order to keep a reliable evolving framework since 2008. 
     81| It defines the |NEMO strategy|_ which is implemented by the System Team on 
     82        a yearly basis in       order to release a new version almost every four years. 
     84.. |NEMO strategy| replace:: multi-year development strategy 
     86When the need arises, :forge:`working groups <wiki/WorkingGroups>` are created or resumed to 
     87gather the community expertise for advising on the development activities.
