DKRZ Tech Talk: The coupling library YAC

Jan 12, 2021

Dear users,

It is our great pleasure to announce next week’s Tech Talk. On Tuesday, Jan 19 at 15:15, Moritz Hanke (DKRZ) and René Redler (MPI-M) will present YAC, the coupling library used in ICON. They will give an overview on the functionality of YAC and some details on how to use it. Additionally, the talk will include information on how YAC is used within the Icosahedral Nonhydrostatic (ICON) general circulation model, which is YAC's main user.

YAC (Yet Another Coupler) is a lightweight software library, which has been developed to realise the coupling of Earth system model components. The software provides parallelised two-dimensional neighbourhood search, interpolation, and communication for the coupling between any two model components. The software offers flexible coupling of physical fields defined on regular and irregular grids on the sphere without a priori assumptions about grid structure or grid element types. All supported grids can be combined with any of the various supported interpolations.
The tech talk will give an overview on the available functionality and some details on how to use it. Additionally, the talk will include information on how YAC is used within the Icosahedral Nonhydrostatic (ICON) general circulation model, which is YAC's main user.
