Combining the mixed discontinuous Galerkin method for the Darcy flow and the interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin methods for the Stokes problem, a locally conservative discrete scheme is proposed for numerically solving the coupled Stokes and Darcy problem. We prove the well-posedness of the solution of the proposed numerical scheme by boundedness, K-ellipticity and a discrete inf-sup condition. A priori error estimates, in proper norms are derived, and to verify the theoretical analysis, some numerical experiments are given.
