Short summary
The OASIS software package provides capabilities that allow different models to be coupled together to carry out new scientific investigation. This is particularly useful in climate model simulations where atmosphere, ocean, sea ice, hydrology, land, ocean wave, chemistry, and other types of Earth system models are often coupled together. The OASIS software package is used by several groups around the world, and this paper describes features of the latest implementation.
