We introduce the Oceanographic Multipurpose Software Environment ( OMUSE): an
open source framework for oceanographic simulation codes developed at the IMAU (Utrecht) using coupling technology developed at Leiden Observatory (Leiden). OMUSE aims to provide a homogeneous environment for numerical ocean simulation codes, simplifying their use and deployment. Using OMUSE numerical experiments that combine ocean models representing different physics or spanning different ranges of physical scales can be easily designed. Here, we present the design of OMUSE as well as the modules and model components currently included, which range from a simple conceptual models to to full global circulation models such as POP. We discuss the types of the couplings that can be implemented using OMUSE and present examples of OMUSE applications, that demonstrate the efficient and relatively straightforward model initialisation and coupling possible with OMUSE.
