MPAS-ocean coupled?

Post by cstark » Tue Jun 23, 2020 11:46 pm

Is there coupling between MPAS-atmosphere and MPAS-ocean in the current version?

The MPAS-Model repository itself contains no coupler. The US Department of Energy is developing an Earth-system model, E3SM, in which MPAS-Ocean is coupled to an atmosphere model other than MPAS-Atmosphere. Simultaneously, there are several of us at NCAR who are working to implement the MPAS-Atmosphere dynamical core in CAM for use in the Community Earth System Model, which will eventually allow coupling to an ocean model other than MPAS-Ocean.
