In order to test the OASIS3 coupler in a light coupled configuration, CERFACS has written 3 ``toy'' component models, mimicking an atmosphere model (atmoa3), an ocean model (oceoa3), and a chemistry model (cheoa3), which sources can be found in oasis3/examples/toyoasis3/src. These ``toy'' component models are `empty' in the sense that they do not model any real physics or dynamics. The coupled combination of these 3 ``toy'' component models through OASIS3 coupling software is refered to as the TOYOASIS3 coupled model; the TOYOASIS3 coupling is realistic as the coupling algorithm linking the toy component models, the size and the grid of the 2D coupling fields, and the operations performed by OASIS3 on the coupling fields are realistic.
The current version of OASIS3 and its TOYOASIS3 example coupled model was successfully compiled and run on:
Compiling OASIS3 was described in section 8.1. In the following section, the TOYOASIS3 example coupled model is first described in more detail (see section 8.3.1), then instructions on how to compile and run TOYOASIS3 are given in section 8.3.2.
