    6 NEMO Ocean Model 
    7 ================ 
     5`NEMO`_ for *Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean* is a state-of-the-art modelling framework for 
     6research activities and forecasting services in ocean and climate sciences. 
    9 NEMO_ (Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean) is a state-of-the-art modelling framework of  
    10 ocean related engines for oceanographic research, operational oceanography, seasonal forecast and  
    11 [paleo]climate studies. 
     8.. contents:: 
     9   :local: 
    1314The NEMO ocean model has 3 major components: 
    15 - :rstblue:`OPA` is fundamental to all users by modelling the ocean [thermo]dynamics and  
    16   solving the primitive equations; 
    17 - :rstgrey:`LIM` for sea-ice simulates ice [thermo]dynamics, brine inclusions and  
    18   subgrid-scale thickness variations; 
    19 - :rstgreen:`TOP-PISCES` models biogeochemistry with TOP for  
    20   the on/offline oceanic tracers transport and PISCES for the biogeochemical processes. 
     16- |OPA| models the ocean [thermo]dynamics and solves the primitive equations 
     17  (``./src/OCE``) :cite:`NEMO_manual`; 
     18- |SI3| simulates ice [thermo]dynamics, brine inclusions and subgrid-scale thickness variations 
     19  (``./src/ICE``) :cite:`SI3_manual`; 
     20- |TOP| models the [on|off]line oceanic tracers transport and the biogeochemical processes 
     21  (``./src/MBG``) :cite:`TOP_manual`. 
    22 These physical engines are described in their respective `reference publications`_. 
     23These physical core engines are described in their respective <reference publications> that must be cited for 
     24any work related to their use. 
    24 They are complemented by a 2-way nesting software (AGRIF_) and  
    25 a versatile data assimilation interface with 3 different modules 
    26 (linear-tangent TAM, observational operators OBS, and increment ASM). 
     26Applications and capabilities 
    28 ------------ 
    29 Applications 
    30 ------------ 
     29Not only does the NEMO framework model the ocean circulation, 
     30it offers various features to enable 
    32 | Distributed under CeCILL license (GNU GPL compatible - see ``LICENSE``),  
    33   the framework offers several builtins reference configurations to  
    34   check your computing architecture and evaluate the model skills and performances (``./cfgs``). 
    35 | The end user could also find some idealized test cases on the web to serve as examples and  
    36   to study particular processes. 
     32- Create :doc:`embedded zooms <zooms>` seamlessly with 2-way nesting package `AGRIF`_. 
     33- :doc:`Low cost biogeochemistry <coarsening>` and :doc:`alternative model opportunity <tracers>`. 
     34- Versatile :doc:`assimilation <assimilation>`. 
     35- :doc:`Output diagnostics <diagnostics>` with `XIOS`_ server. 
     36- :doc:`Coupling <coupling>` via `OASIS`_ for Earth system modelling. 
    38 A set of tools is also provided to setup your own configuration and  
    39 [pre|post]process your data (``./tools``). 
     38| Several :doc:`builtins configurations <configurations>` are provided to assess the skills and performances of 
     39   the model which can be used as templates for :doc:`setting up a new configuration <setup>` (``./cfgs``). 
     40| The end user could also find some :doc:`idealised test cases <test_cases>` online to serve as templates and 
     41   to study particular processes (``./tests``). 
    41 ------- 
    42 Options 
    43 ------- 
     43A set of :doc:`utilities <tools>` is also provided to [pre|post]process your data (``./tools``). 
    45 For writing diagnostics in a efficient way, NEMO make use of XIOS_ server which  
    46 controlled the outputs using XML input file. 
    48 To enable Earth system modelling, NEMO can be interfaced via  
    49 OASIS_ coupleur to external components such as atmospheric models or  
    50 alternative models of sea-ice or biogeochemistry.

    53 Documentation 
    54 ------------- 
     50The reference documentation is archived online 
    56 The NEMO reference manual can be generated from the LaTeX source code (``./doc``),  
    57 either in PDF or in HTML format, but it mights require some additionnal installations.

     70Since 2014 the project has a `Special Issue <http://www.geosci-model-dev.net/special_issue40.html>`_ in 
     71the open-access journal Geoscientific Model Development (GMD) from the European Geosciences Union (EGU). 
     72The main scope is to collect relevant manuscripts covering various topics and to provide a single portal to 
     73assess the model potential and evolution. 
     75Used by a wide audience, numerous :website:`associated projects <projects>` have been carried out and 
     76extensive :website:`bibliography <bibliography/publications>` published.

    63 --------------------- 
    65 | The NEMO Consortium gathering 6 European institutes organises the sustainable development in order to  
    66   keep a reliable evolving system since 2008. 
    67 | It defined the multiyear development strategy which is implemented by the NEMO System Team. 
     81| The NEMO Consortium pulling together 5 European institutes (`CMCC`_, `CNRS`_, `MOI`_, `Met Office`_ and `NERC`_) 
     82   plans the sustainable development in order to keep a reliable evolving framework since 2008. 
     83| It defines the |NEMO strategy|_ which is implemented by the System Team on 
     84   a yearly basis in order to release a new version almost every four years.
