Ticket #2379

Description

Create a simple testcase using OASIS to help building new coupled configurations.
Will use OASIS and a simplified fake atmosphere (TOY_ATM in OASIS wording.
May do more than only ocean-atmosphere coupling (to be discussed).
Useful as coupling demonstrator and for first level valisation of coupling with OASIS in future NEMO versions.

Implementation

Error: Failed to load processor box
No macro or processor named 'box' found

As for the test case defined in STEP1 (see below):

  • no changes in NEMO code
  • Changes in &namsbc_cpl namelist
  • Need to add the TOY_ATM software, as a simplified /fake atmosphere somewhere to be able tu run this test case

Methodology

STEP 1: Implement in the up-to-date version for 2020 the test case developed in 2018

Restarting from /ccc/work/cont003/gen7451/clevy/VALID_CPL_4.0/trunk/cfgs/CPL_TOYATM in irene computer, implment the CPL_TOYATM in the up-to-date NEMO version, as a test case (in trunk/tests).

CPL_TOYATM test case description:

  • Based on the ORCA2_ICE_PISCES reference configuration, activate coupling to a TOYATM (kindly offered by Eric M.) through OASIS
  • coupled fields (from &namsbc_cpl namelist):
&namsbc_cpl    !   coupled ocean/atmosphere model                       ("key_oasis3")
!-----------------------------------------------------------------------
   nn_cplmodel   =     1   !  Maximum number of models to/from which NEMO is potentially sending/receiving data
   ln_usecplmask = .false. !  use a coupling mask file to merge data received from several models
   !                       !   -> file cplmask.nc with the float variable called cplmask (jpi,jpj,nn_cplmodel)
   nn_cats_cpl   =     5   !  Number of sea ice categories over which coupling is to be carried out (if not 1)

!-----------------------------------------------------------------------
  • The test cases needs OASIS and a simple TOYATM
  • Where should the TOYATM be installed? In the test case, in NEMO tools? elsewhere?
  • Validation of the test case remains to be defined more precisely (check OASIS output ATSSTSST_toyatm_01.nc compared to ocean SST ?)

STEP 2: is this the final version of the expected test case?

  • Adding other couplings?
  • Checking sea-ice?

STEP 3: implement final test case

Implement the finalised test case as part of the usual validation testbed, and also in the github for NEMO test cases
