New URL for NEMO forge!

Since March 2022 along with NEMO 4.2 release, the code development moved to a self-hosted GitLab.
This present forge is now archived and remained online for history.
2017WP/WAVE-2_Clementi_add_coupling – NEMO

WAVE-2_Clementi add coupling

The PI is responsible to closely follow the progress of the action, and especially to contact NEMO project manager if the delay on preview (or review) are longer than the 2 weeks expected.


The action has to be detailed briefly in the 'Summary' section for later inclusion in other pages.
Edit the 'Summary' section as with an ordinary wiki page.

  • Italic formatting shows the default values or help.
  • Set specific TracLinks (development ticket and branch).

Out of this, the rest of the page can be edited on-line inside the form fields considering the following color code given hereafter.

PI(S) Previewer(s) Reviewer(s)

Record your modifications for the section you have edited by clicking on the corresponding button at the end of the section with 'Save ...' button. Just above, the log record will be updated.

The informations inside the form fields and this wiki page itself are stored in 2 separate databases.
As a consequence, there is absolutely no risk to make any modification in the page itself as long as you don't rename the page or modify the source code of {{{#!TracForm ... }}} processors.


Action WAVE-2_Clementi add coupling
PI(S) Emanuela Clementi


Continue the implementation of selected wave-current processes:

  1. Improve Stokes drift velocity calculation using Breivik et al. 2014 formulation;
  2. Barotropic Stokes drift circulation included directly in the model prognostic velocity;
    • Stokes-Coriolis force includes the barotropic Stokes drift velocity;
    • RHS of ssh Eq. includes the barotropic Stokes drift divergence;
    • Baroclinic Stokes drift is added to the advective velocity used on tracers
  3. Stokes-Coriolis force available with all the vorticity schemes.

(Status: Points 1, 2 and 3 have been integrated in NEMO in February 2017 thanks to Gurvan and are already included in the trunk)

Meeting organization with the WAVE-WG to discuss further issues to be investigated and implemented:

  1. Add Breivik et al. (2015) formulation of Stokes drift profile;
  2. Vertical mixing enhancement due to wave breaking;
  3. Start discussion on implementation of Langmuir circulation;
  4. Start discussion on wave interaction with sea-ice;
  5. Start discussion on small scale coastal wave-current coupling

(Status: A meeting has been organized in September 2017 in Liverpool during the WaveWorkshop?:

This section should be completed before starting to develop the code, in order to find agreement on the method beforehand.

Error: Failed to load processor TracForm
No macro or processor named 'TracForm' found

Once the PI has completed this section, he should send a mail to the previewer(s) asking them to preview the work within two weeks.


Since the preview step must be completed before the PI starts the coding, the previewer(s) answers are expected to be completed within the two weeks after the PI has sent his request.
For each question, an iterative process should take place between PI and previewer(s) in order to reach a "YES" answer for each of the following questions.

Error: Failed to load processor TracForm
No macro or processor named 'TracForm' found

Once all "YES" have been reached, the PI can start the development into his development branch.


Once the development is done, the PI should complete this section below and ask the reviewers to start their review in the lower section.

Error: Failed to load processor TracForm
No macro or processor named 'TracForm' found


A successful review is needed to schedule the merge of this development into the future NEMO release during next Merge Party (usually in November).

Error: Failed to load processor TracForm
No macro or processor named 'TracForm' found

Once review is successful, the development must be scheduled for merge during next Merge Party Meeting.
