New Branch for 2011 development CMCC.1: improved TOP interface with BFM

Reported by: vichi Owned by: vichi
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: TOP Version: v3.3
Severity: Keywords: BFM


Branch to develop a common interface for other biogeochemical models not included in the TOP directory. This interface should provide a seamless connection for surface and lateral boundary conditions, an extension of what already done with the merging of TRA/TRC (see also

Outcomes of the videoconference held on September 17th. Participants: Marcello Vichi, Christian Ethe', Karen Edwards, Momme Butenschoen. Christian's proposal (see wiki:ticket/846?) of using FCM is seen as the way forward to minimize the impacts on the current NEMO code and allow all the developers of external ecosystem models to carry on their own development still maintaining the possibility to couple with NEMO in a seamless way. A powerpoint presentation is attached to the wiki page wiki:ticket/846?, explaining the status and the possible solution. The underlying idea is to explore the method used at MetOffice? where different components are first extracted (using FCM extract.cfg configuration script) and then built. Currently, FCM is used within NEMO just to perform the build phase (build.cfg) as the extraction is not needed being the code part of the downloaded NEMO version. A possible strategy to explore is to include an additional flag for the makenemo script that should look for a user-provided build.cfg file with all the information on the external biogeochemical model. This model code will then be copied at the same level of the WORK directory. The proper versions of trcini.F90 and trcstp.F0 will instead be put in the MY_SRC directory. All files present in MY_SRC directory are compiled in place of the ones in the WORK directory. The current development branch will thus be used as a testing ground for the usage of FCM as interface to external models. It is not expected that this development will be part of the next release, but we believe this strategy will facilitate any future inclusion of other external models.
