AMM7-surge: A 7km resolution Atlantic Margin Model surge configuration using NEMOv3.6

  • 1. National Oceanography Centre
  • 2. Met Office



A 7km resolution Atlantic Margin Model 2D surge configuration.

The configuration is based on v3.6 of the NEMO modelling framework.

The configuration recipe has be written for the ARCHER HPC INTEL environment.

The recipe describes how to configure and run a tides-only example.

Repository File Hierarchy

DOCS: A recipe on how to build and run AMM7_surge model.

EXP_tideonly: An experiment directory for a (FES2014) tide only demonstration simulation.

INPUTS: Store for external forcing files (e.g. tides, meteorology) and domain configuration file. Also store for boundary condition setup namelist file.

ARCH: Store for architecture build files.

MY_SRC: Store for FORTRAN modification to NEMO checkout from NEMO repository.

Setting up AMM7 surge model

To run the AMM7 surge model follow the recipe in docs/AMM7_SURGE_build_and_run.rst. This recipe forms a template of how to obtain, compile and run the code.

To run a full surge model meteorological forcing is required. For simplicity this demonstration simulation is configured to run without meteorological forcing (otherwise requiring sea level pressure and 10m winds). Tidal boundary conditions are also required - these can be generated following the docs/generate_tidal_boundaries.rst recipe, or downloaded. Finally a domain configuration file is required - this can be generated following NEMO guidelines or downloaded.
