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.

Robustness and TestCases

Working group leader (and responsible for wiki pages): Simona Flavoni

Members of the working group:

  • Simona Flavoni
  • Julien LeSommer
  • Paolo Oddo
  • Thomas Dubos
  • Laurent Debreu
  • Jêrome Chanut
  • George Nurser
  • Rachid Benshila
  • Julien Paul
  • Gurvan Madec
  • Clement Rousset
  • Emanuela Clementi
  • Anne Marie Treguier
  • Guillaume Roullet
  • Pierre-Antoine Bouttier


Motivation: There are several motivations to define a suite of standard test-cases for NEMO (e.g. for pedagogical purpose and/or for demonstrating the benefit of new features and/or for illustrating the effect of a numerical scheme). The purpose of the Working Group is to :

  • Specify the expected outcome of standard test-cases in NEMO.
  • Define how standard test-cases should be distributed within NEMO. There will be interactions with Configuration Manager Working Group to decide how input files (bathymetry, coordinates,...) will be given, and how they will be maintained.


First meeting: Coordination with Simplification, Configuration Manager and AGRIF (probably by videoconference) to fix rules of "what is a configuration, which files, and where": 2/3/2015

minutes of visioconference : minute-visio_2-3-2015

Second meeting: Syntheses of what other models done, possible interactions?
