Having defined the continuous equations in Chap. 2 and chosen a time discretization Chap. 3, we need to choose a discretization on a grid, and numerical algorithms. In the present chapter, we provide a general description of the staggered grid used in NEMO, and other information relevant to the main directory routines as well as the DOM (DOMain) directory.
