NEMO standing for Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean is a state-of-the-art modelling framework for research activities and forecasting services in ocean and climate sciences, developed in a sustainable way by a European consortium.
The NEMO ocean model has 3 major components:
These physical core engines are described in their respective reference manuals that must be cited for any work related to their use.
Reference Configurations and Test Cases
Several built-in configurations are provided to evaluate the skills and performances of the model. They can be used as as first easy set-up and as template for setting up a new configuration.
Idealized test cases addressing specific physical processes are also available for download.

Since 2014 the project has a Special Issue in the open-access journal Geoscientific Model Development (GMD) from the European Geosciences Union (EGU). The main scope is to collect relevant manuscripts covering various topics and to provide a single portal to assess the model potential and evolution.
Used by a wide audience, numerous associated projects have been carried out and various publications are available.
It defines the multi-year development strategy that is implemented by the System Team on a yearly basis in order to regularly release a new version.
When the need arises, working groups are created or resumed to gather the community expertise for advising on the development activities.
