NEMO for *Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean* is a state-of-the-art modelling framework of 
ocean related engines for oceanographic research, operational oceanography, seasonal forecast and 
[paleo]climate studies.


Distributed under CeCILL license (GNU GPL compatible - see ``./LICENSE``),
the NEMO ocean model has 3 major components:

- :rstblue:`OPA` is fundamental to all users by modelling the ocean [thermo]dynamics and 
  solving the primitive equations         (``./src/OCE``); 
- :rstgrey:`SI`\ :rstgreysup:`3` for sea-ice simulates ice [thermo]dynamics, brine inclusions and 
  subgrid-scale thickness variations      (``./src/ICE``); 
- :rstgreen:`TOP-PISCES` models biogeochemistry with TOP for the on/offline oceanic tracers transport and 
  PISCES for the biogeochemical processes (``./src/MBG``).

These physical engines are described in their respective reference publications that must be cited for 
any work related to their use.

Applications and capabilities

Not only does the NEMO framework model the ocean circulation,
it offers various features to enable

- 2-way nesting package `AGRIF`_ to create embedded zooms seamlessly
- Flexible biogeomchemistry with online coarsening and possible integration of a customized model 
- Versatile data assimilation interface with 3 different modules
  (tangent linear, observational operators and increments)

lation a efficient XIOS_ server for outputing diagnostics a coupled via OASIS_ to alternative components or other models to enable Earth system modelling.

| Several builtins configurations are provided to assess the skills and performances of the model which
   can be used as templates for setting up a new configuration (``./cfgs``).
| The end user could also find some idealised test cases on the web to serve as examples and
   to study particular processes (``./tests``).

A set of tools is also provided to setup your own configuration and [pre|post]process your data (``./tools``).


| The NEMO reference manual and a quick start guide can be generated from Latex and RST source code files
   (``./doc``), either in PDF or in HTML format, but it might require some additional installations.
| In any case, both formats are available online: `HTML`_ | `PDF`_

| Since 2014 the project has a `Special Issue`_ in the Geoscientific Model Development (GMD) open-access journal
   from the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
   The main scope is to collect relevant manuscripts which cover a wide variety of topics like
   process studies, new parameterizations, implementation of new model features and new NEMO configurations.
| Also it provides a single portal to search, discover and understand about
   the NEMO modelling framework potential and evolution and to submit their contributions. 

Community development

| The NEMO Consortium gathering 6 European institutes organises the sustainable development in order to 
   keep a reliable evolving system since 2008.
| It defines the multi-year development strategy which is implemented by the NEMO System Team.

`Working groups`_ are regularly created or resumed to gather the expertise in the NEMO community in order to 
focus the development work on a specific subject or major component of NEMO.
