6 OCEANS 2025: Themes and selected scientific objectives
Theme 9: Next Generation Ocean Prediction Systems: How sensitive are climate models to the manner in which sea ice is coupled? Can nested models be trusted to give accurate results? Can an ocean model be made energetically self-consistent? What is the most appropriate level of complexity of biogeochemical models in climate studies? Approaches and methodologies: Develop NEMO as the core OGCM for use by the scientific community in the UK, at resolutions of 1°, ¼°and 1/12°, and with nested grids (WP 9.10). Develop an ocean model testbed permitting objective intercomparison and validation of a range of ecosystem models, with a view to embedding the most promising in OGCMs (WP 9.11).

7 OCEANS 2025: Themes and selected scientific objectives
Theme 2: Marine Biogeochemical Cycles To determine the sensitivity to future climate change of the mechanisms sustaining total nutrient supply to the photic zone over the three major biomes of the North Atlantic. Approaches and methodologies: Quantify the magnitude and sensitivity of nutrient fluxes associated with winter overturning and Ekman pumping. For overturning, this will be achieved using time-series stations, Argo floats and mooring data together with previous studies and basin-scale simulations (NEMO both at ¼º and with a smaller scale nested component at 1/12º in the North Atlantic).

8 OCEANS 2025: Themes and selected scientific objectives
Theme 1: Climate, Ocean Circulation, and Sea Level Model simulations of climate change in the ocean Identifying the causes of recent climate change in the ocean Physical-biogeochemical budgets and mixing in the Southern Ocean (DIMES) Research plan and deliverables: 2008: Completed simulation of changes in the ocean over the period obtained by running NEMO globally at 1/4° resolution (and with a nested 1/12° North Atlantic grid) using NCEP/NCAR (and possibly ECMWF) derived surface flux fields (WP 1.1b)

9 The UK is moving towards a more coordinated approach based on the NEMO model
This forms the core of “OCEANS 2025” with plans for (amongst others): Global 1/4o models with biogeochemistry and 1/12o nested regions Global 1/12o physics only model by 2010

10 Theme 9: NOCS NEMO activities
Produced global 1 degree NEMO configuration (ORCA1) [shared with UKMO] Tested ORCA1 with “LOBSTER” NPZD model, about to test new NOCS biogeochemistry model “MEDUSA” Developed “interpolation on the fly” option for handling surface forcing fields Constructed ORCA1 forcing datasets which are compatible with those used with the current DRAKKAR (global 1/4o) model Completed multi-decadal integrations of ORCA025 Developed capability to run AGRIF nests in sea-ice regions

11 Performance ORCA1: 15 processors : 3.59s per timestep (2.75yrs/day)
ORCA1: 32 processors with LOBSTER : 3.57s per timestep ORCA025: 56 processors: Avg ts = ( 9 entries ) Min = Max = (0.28yrs/day) On HECToR: ORCA025: 221 processors: Avg ts = 2.44 ( entries ) Min = 2.13 Max = 7.533 (1.6yrs/day) 16 processors 1.5s per timestep (~ 7 years/day) 64 processors 4.5s per timestep (~ 0.6 years/day) 512 processors 7.2s per timestep (~0.12 years/day)
