Title NEMO Regional Configuration Toolbox
Abstract A toolbox aiding users setting up lateral boundary conditions for a regional NEMO (http://www.nemo-ocean.eu) ocean general circulation model has been developed. The tool is written in Python with portability and sustainability in mind. The NEMO Regional Configuration Toolbox (NRCT) has been developed from existing proprietary ad-hoc code improving the flexibility of the tool, especially in term of the IO. An additional feature of the NRCT is to provide access to remote data sets such as the climate model databases from the Climate Modelling Inter- comparison Project (CMIP) 3 and 52 that were used in recent Inter-governmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) reports. Simple user defined datasets are employed without the need to understand the methods for reading or writing the data. A GUI is also provided to allow the user to define the regional ocean model domain. The NRCT provides an efficient method by which users can setup lateral boundary conditions for near real-time regional NEMO ocean simulations or to begin to perform detailed climate studies with a regional focus with minimal overhead; all of which would be of great scientific benefit and lead to an increased impact of timely scientific output.
