We study numerical methods for solving a coupled Stokes-Darcy problem in porous media flow applications. A two-grid method is proposed for decoupling the mixed model by a coarse grid approximation to the interface coupling conditions. Error estimates are derived for the proposed method. Both theoretical analysis and numerical experiments show the efficiency and effectiveness of the two-grid approach for solving multimodeling problems. Potential extensions and future directions are discussed.
