We developed a new regional coupled ocean–atmosphere model to study air--sea feedbacks. The coupled model is based on two open-source community model components: (1) MITgcm ocean model; (2) Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) atmosphere model. The coupling between these components is performed using ESMF (Earth System Modeling Framework) and implemented according to National United Operational Prediction Capability (NUOPC) consortium. The coupled model is denominated the Scripps--KAUST Regional Integrated Prediction System~(SKRIPS).
