NEMS Applications

Supported Applications

These applications are up to date with the NEMS trunk and have NEMS regression tests.

NEMSfv3gfs

Used to track development of the standlone (uncoupled) FV3 in NEMS. 

Code Manager: Jun.Wang@noaa.gov

Supported Platforms: Theia, WCOSS Cray

NEMSGSM

Global Spectral Model NEMS application for uncoupled developments.  Though this app is not officially frozen, most developments have moved to NEMSfv3gfs or coupled applications.

Code Manager: Jun.Wang@noaa.gov

Supported Platforms: Theia, WCOSS Phase 1

Supported Legacy

These applications still require the atmos layer, which prevents them from using the NEMS trunk.  However, they are up to date with the NEMS build and test systems, have the correct structure, and have NEMS regression tests.

NMMBTestBed

Development of uncoupled NMM-B, including global, nested, and moving nests.  Most development has moved to the NEMSfv3gfs or coupled applications.

Code Manager: Ratko.Vassic@noaa.gov, Dusan.Jovic@noaa.gov, Tom.Black@noaa.gov

Supported Platforms: Theia, WCOSS Phase 1

Developmental

These applications do not have NEMS regression tests, or are using older versions of NEMS that are not in the latest application structure.

HYCOM-GSM-CICE

Development of three way ocean-ice-atmosphere coupling using the Global Spectral Model with HYCOM and CICE.

Code Manager: Bin.Li@noaa.gov

Application Lead: Avichal.Mehra@noaa.gov

Status: correct structure, uses recent NEMS (mid Apr 2017).  No regression tests yet.

WAM-IPE

Coupling of the upper atmosphere (WAM) with an ionosphere/plasmasphere model (IPE).  This application is under rapid development targeting an upcoming milestone, so there has been no effort yet to update to the NEMS trunk. 

Code Manager: George.Millward@noaa.gov

Application Lead: Rashid.Akmaev@noaa.gov

Status: correct structure, uses old version of NEMS (Jun 2016).  Under rapid development.

Regional

Regional Land/Hydro coupling development using GSM, MOM5, WRF-Hydro, and LIS/Noah.

Code Manager: Rocky.Dunlap@noaa.gov

Application Lead: Mike.Ek@noaa.gov

Status: Uses old application structure and an old version of NEMS.  No regression tests.

UGCS-Seasonal

Seasonal global forecasting development.

Code Manager: Patrick.Tripp@noaa.gov

Application Lead: Suru Saha <suranjana.saha@noaa.gov>

Status: A branch exists with the correct NEMS structure and latest NEMS trunk, but without regression tests.  The branch will undergo further testing before merging to the trunk.

Regional-Nest

HYCOM-NMMB coupled development, especially for hurricane forecasting purposes.

Code Manager: none

Application Lead: Tom.Black@noaa.gov

Status: Uses old application structure and an old version of NEMS.  No regression tests.

UGCS-Subseasonal

Sub-seasonal timescale global forecasting development.

Code Manager: xiaqiong.zhou@noaa.gov

Application Lead: Yuejian.Zhu@noaa.gov

Status: Uses old application structure and an old version of NEMS.  No regression tests.

SIS2-GSM-MOM6-CFSv3

Three-way ice-atmosphere-ocean coupling using SIS2, GSM, and MOM6.

Code Manager: patrick.tripp@noaa.gov

Application Lead: Suru Saha <suranjana.saha@noaa.gov>

Status: Uses old version of NEMS, and the old application structure.

WW3TestBed

Used to develop GSM+Wavewatch3 coupling

Code Manager: jessica.meixner@noaa.gov

Application Lead: avichal.mehra@noaa.gov

Status: has a branch with the latest NEMS structure, but older version of NEMS.  Will be replaced with UGCS-Weather.

Upcoming

These are applications that are not for general use yet.  Either they are in progress of being created, or simply placeholder directories.

GSM-HYCOM-KISS

Copy of HYCOM-GSM-CICE for replacing CICE coupling with KISS coupling.  Application was recently created.

Code Manager: none

Application Lead: none

Status: Copy of HYCOM-GSM-CICE.  Uses recent NEMS (Apr 2017) and NEMS application structure.  Cannot compile nor couple with KISS yet.

UGCS-Weather

Weather forecasting timescale global coupling development.  This app will replace WW3TestBed

Code Manager: none

Application Lead: Vijay.Tallapragada@noaa.gov

Status: Will replace WW3TestBed

HycomTestBed

Standalone hycom development

Code Manager: none

Application Lead: Avichal.Mehra@noaa.gov

Status: placeholder directory

UGCS-GSM-MOM6-SIS2

Unknown.

Code Manager: none

Application Lead: none

Status: has no trunk.  Probably a placeholder directory.
