The directory oasis3-mct/examples/tutorial_communication contains the files of a tutorial to learn how to instrument codes with calls to the OASIS3-MCT library in order to couple them together. The tutorial involves two toy model codes, ocean.F90 and atmos.F90, to be instrumented with calls to OASIS3-MCT API (Application Program Interface) routines. Toy models are skeleton programs that do not contain any real physics or dynamics but that can reproduce real exchanges of coupling fields. Instrumenting those toy models gives a practical experience of using the OASIS3-MCT library. All information about this tutorial is provided in the document tutorial_communication.pdf therein.
This tutorial is extracted from the Short Online Private Course (SPOC) on “Code Coupling with OASIS3-MCT” shortly described in the next section.
