During Initialize Phase, Coupler detects difference in attributes of the SST field between two components.
Attributes of SST Export are degrees Celsius
Attributes of SST import are degrees Kelvin
Run Phase : Coupler receives Ocean SST data from Ocean Comp. in Celsius
Export SST in °C
Run Phase: Coupler performs unit conversion to Kelvin using UDUnits and updates Field Attribute
Run Phase: Coupler sends converted SST Field to Atmos. Comp.
Atmos. Comp. receives SST field in °K
Data Manipulation (Regridding, unit conversion, etc.)
Data Transfer (Import/Export States, Fields & Field Bundles, and Metadata)
