Climate models are composed of different components such as atmosphere,
ocean, land, and sea-ice. Because the individual models have to interact by
exchanging data with each other, a coupling technique for use on
powerful computers is required. This paper describes the coupling of
an atmosphere model to an ocean model using the coupling library
MpCCI, which has been developed and used for general multidisciplinary
applications. It is shown that the coupling technique is efficiently
implemented using the coupling library, and that the overhead for coupling
is almost negligible.
