NEMOVAR is a state-of-the-art multi-incremental variational data assimilation system dedicated to the European ocean modelling platform NEMO for research and operational applications. It is co-developed by MOISE, CERFACS (FR), ECMWF (EU) and MetOffice (UK) under the CeCILL license, written in Fortran and Python. It is now in use in both ECMWF and MetOffice for their operational oceanic forecasting systems. It has also been used for specific studies in collaboration with Mercator-Ocean, LPO, LOCEAN and LEGI in France and University of Namur in Belgium. It has been adopted as the ocean analysis component in the FP7 project ERA-Clim2 (01/2014-12/2016).

Previously part of NEMOVAR, NEMO-TAM (Tangent and adjoint models for NEMO) that have been developed by the MOISE team will be now distributed directly by the NEMO consortium. The first official tagged release including NEMO-TAM has been published early 2013.
