Author : Gurvan Madec

ticket : #658

Branch : DEV_r1826_DOC


Phasing between the ocean engine (OPA) documentation and the actual trunk source code (revision 1826)

  • NEMO_tex : add a \ifile command to generate an index of NetCDF Input files
  • NEMO_book.tex :
  • cosmetic changes in the cover page
  • addition of the NEMO team as autor
  • Add hyperlink in the pdf document (thanks to George Nurser
  • add math_abbrev.sty to simplify the mathematical expressions
  • change T-point into t-point and e3T into e3t everywhere
  • Namelist : introduce the new namelist names and their associated variable names (almost all Chapters involved)
  • suppression of the rigid lid option : update of Chap_Model_Basics, DOM, DYN, MISC...
  • STP : creation of this chapter about the time stepping strategy and add the Modified Leap-Frog documentation
  • DYN : add a § for sshwzv
  • MISC : add the steric effect (AR5 diagnostics)
  • namlist: new names changed everywhere
  • ZDF
  • zdfbfr : document the changes in the treatment of bottom friction
  • zdftmx : description of tidal mixing parameterisation including ITF specific treatment
  • zdftke : add the description of the updated momentum / TKE interactions
  • Annex : update the 4 appendix (from A to D), including the update of the variable naming rules (namelist variables and structures) in App.D.

Missing points

  • Chap_Model_Basics : addition of generalised coordinate, ALE, z, z*, s and z-tilde (in relation with Appendix A).
  • DOM : idea: split this chapter in two: Time Domain and Space Domain
  • STP (time) : add a description of daymod ; introduce the Crank-Nicholson scheme ; ...
  • DOM : description of istate, domclo, geo2ocean (probably in SBC chapter for the later)
  • ZDF : zdftke : missing the description of new TKE parameter
