NEMURO and Related Models

Computer source code for the NEMURO model (zip, < 1 Mb)

MODEL Task Team has established a collaboration with the EUR-OCEANS (European Network of Excellence for Ocean Ecosystem Analysis, www.eur-oceans.eu) (see PICES Press 15(1), p. 17 ). EUR-OCEANS Model Shopping Tool provides a searchable online catalogue of pelagic ecosystem model equations, including those of the PICES NEMURO and NEMURO.FISH models.

Further information on the development of NEMURO and related models may be found in the Workshop Archives below.
