THE IPSL_CM4 coupled model adaptation guide

IPSLCM4 earth system climate model was adapted to PRISM infrastructure and used for demonstration runs. The climate coupled configuration called IPSL_CM4 and used at Pierre-Simon Laplace Institute (IPSL) is composed of the oceanic component OPA, the sea ice component LIM, the atmospheric component LMDZ and the land surface component ORCHIDEE, coupled through OASIS coupler.

This document gives some information about this configuration and its adaptation to the PRISM system. The two first parts give a brief description about this coupled model and its components. The third part is more technical and stresses on the adaptation of the models sources. At last, the fourth part is a step-by-step guide to help the user to compile and run IPSL_CM4 with the PRISM environment.
