1<h3>About NEMO</h3>
2
3<a href="https://nemo-ocean.eu">NEMO</a> standing for <strong>Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean</strong> 
4is a state-of-the-art modelling framework for research activities and forecasting services in
5ocean and climate sciences, developed in a sustainable way by a European consortium.
6
7<h4>Overview</h4>
8
9<p>
10The NEMO ocean model has 3 major components:
11</p>
12
13<ul style="list-style-type: disclosure-closed;">
14   <li>
15     <span style="color: blue;">NEMO-OCE</span> 
16     models the ocean {thermo}dynamics and solves the primitive equations
17   </li>
18   <li>
19     <span style="color: grey;">NEMO-ICE (SI<sup>3</sup>: Sea-Ice Integrated Initiative)</span> 
20     models sea-ice {thermo}dynamics, brine inclusions and subgrid-scale thickness variations
21   </li>
22   <li>
23     <span style="color: green;">NEMO-TOP (Tracers in the Ocean Paradigm)</span> 
24     models the {on,off}line oceanic tracers transport and biogeochemical processes (using PISCES)
25   </li>
26</ul>
27
28<p>
29  These physical core engines are described in their respective
30  <a href="https://nemo-ocean.eu/documentation">reference manuals</a> 
31  that must be cited for any work related to their use.
32</p>

54     is also provided to {pre,post}process your data
55   </li>
56</ul>
57
58<h4>Reference Configurations and Test Cases</h4>
59
60Several <a href="https://nemo-ocean.eu/framework/components/configurations">built-in configurations</a> are provided to evaluate the skills and performances of the model.
61They can be used as as first easy set-up and as template for setting up a new configuration.<br>
62<a href="https://github.com/NEMO-ocean/NEMO-examples">Idealized test cases</a> addressing specific physical processes are also available for download.

107Since 2014 the project has a <a href="https://www.geosci-model-dev.net/special_issue40.html">Special Issue</a> in
108the open-access journal Geoscientific Model Development (GMD) from the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
109The main scope is to collect relevant manuscripts covering various topics and
110to provide a single portal to assess the model potential and evolution.<br>
111Used by a wide audience,
112numerous <a href="https://nemo-ocean.eu/projects">associated projects</a> have been carried out and
113<a href="https://nemo-ocean.eu/bibliography/publications">various publications</a> are available.
