    16 - |OPA| models the ocean [thermo]dynamics and solves the primitive equations 
    17   (``./src/OCE``) :cite:`NEMO_manual`; 
    18 - |SI3| simulates ice [thermo]dynamics, brine inclusions and subgrid-scale thickness variations 
    19   (``./src/ICE``) :cite:`SI3_manual`; 
    20 - |TOP| models the [on|off]line oceanic tracers transport and the biogeochemical processes
