Open Source In order to efficiently represent complex systems, numerical modelling has to rely on many physical models at a time. The continuity of the solution is granted only if these models can constantly exchange information.

A coupler is a software tool allowing the concurrent execution and the intercommunication of programs not having been especially designed for information exchange.

After many years of development and regular use, the PALM coupler has become Open Source with the name O-PALM.

In addition to the data exchange issues, the coupler can take care of a number of services, such as intermediate computations on the exchanged data, grid to grid interpolations, parallel data redistribution.

CERFACS will centralize the integration of the contributed development and will distribute the official releases. As stated in the license, the code comes with no guarantees. CERFACS offers user support, training and on site maintenance on the basis of specific agreements with the users.
