The capability to simulate the ocean in ice shelf cavities has been recently implemented in NEMO Mathiot et al. (2017). This has opened new oportunities for regional or global studies, with prescribed or thermodynamically interactive ice shelf melting, including coupling to ice-sheet models.

The aims of this workshop are to:

  • Inform on who is using NEMO’s ice shelf module and for what applications.

  • Share experience in the development of global or regional NEMO configurations.

  • Share experience in coupling NEMO to ice sheet models (BISICLES, Elmer/Ice).

  • Discuss future developments needed in NEMO regarding ice shelves.

The workshop will be held at IGE, University Grenoble-Alpes, France (see location), on Friday 7th September 2018. For those attending the FRISP meeting, transportation will be arranged from Aussois to Grenoble on Thursday evening. The workshop will start relatively early on Friday morning so that participants can take a train or fly back home on Friday evening. The closest international airports are Lyon Saint Exupery (1h by bus from Grenoble) and Geneva (2h15 by bus from Grenoble).
