Joint Seminar: Ocean-ice modelling and analysis for deep and shelf seas based on NEMO Place: ZMAW Room 133

The NEMO (Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean) model has been extensively used in Canada for the development of coupled atmosphere-ocean-ice forecasting systems and ocean climate study, at global, basin and regional scales. After a brief introduction of the applications of NEMO in government-led CONCEPTS  (Canadian Operational Networks for Coupled Environmental PredicTion Systems) and university-led MEOPAR  (Marine Environmental Observation, Prediction and Response) programs. In this presentation I will focus on simulation, validation and analysis of NEMO solutions in the Arctic and North Atlantic Oceans. Specific topics may include the dependence of kinetic energy on lateral viscosity, model bias in the Labrador Sea, forcing mechanism of volume transport through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, and influence of uncertainty of bathymetry on tidal simulation in the North Atlantic.
