    11 In this test case, a data assimilation program is used to read an ensemble of model fields from files and compute an analysis step. This is the so-called offline coupling mode of PDAF.

    122122As a second test case, we recommend to look at the tutorial online_2D_serialmodel.
    123123This case is again a simple 2D model field, but now coupled to PDAF with
    124 time stepping. This is the so-called online-coupling of PDAF, in which the model code is augmented with data assimilation functionality provided by PDAF.
