    v6 v7  
    7171         * Benefitting from the gathering of multiple communications into one  
    7272     * TOP 
    73         * New TOP component structure  with 5 modules handled with namelist parameter rather than CPP keys  ( PISCES, CFC11/CFC12/SF6 carbon tracers, MY_TRC  a template for new module, AGE a water age tracking and C14 a radiocarbon passive tracer ) 
    74         * A new configuration was created to use the inert carbon tracers (CFCs) as a benchmark of new developments, named ORCA2_OFF_TRC 
    75         *  A common framework for TOP boundary conditions ( surface, coastal and open boundaries ) 
    76         * PISCES has undergone several modifications and enhancements: 
    77           * A new lability scheme for POC that can be activated from the namelist 
    78           * An improved optional description of ligands for the iron cycle 
    79           * Carbonate chemistry is based on MOCSY 2.0 
    80           * Kriest POC description has been removed 
    81           * a quota version of the code can be activated (PISCES-QUOTA) 
     73        * The passive tracers transport component was redesigned toward a modular structure and users can enable each module directly through logical flags in namelist_top (no more fortran macros!).  
     74        * TOP currently accounts for the following 5 modules: CFC contains inorganic carbon tracers (CFC11/CFC12/SF6), MY_TRC is a template for new modules (or external couplings), AGE deals with water age tracking, C14 as a radiocarbon passive tracer, and the companion ecosystem model PISCES. 
     75        * A generalized infrastructure was developed to handle the prescription of either surface, coastal, or open boundaries conditions for each passive tracer. 
     76        * A new configuration, named ORCA2_OFF_TRC, was created to provide a benchmark simulation environment to deal with inert carbon tracers dynamics by exploiting the offline coupling with NEMO. 
     77        * PISCES model contains new developments and modifications: 
     78          * Particulate Organic Carbon (POC) component comes with a new lability scheme, while the former Kriest parameterisation was superseded; 
     79          * A complex iron chemistry scheme is now available, with an improved description of ligands for the marine iron cycle 
     80          * Carbonate chemistry is based on MOCSY 2.0 routines (see Orr and Epitalon, 2015), by complying also with CMIP6 standards. 
     81          * Ecosystem components can be optionally modelled by means of explicit nutrient quotas (PISCES-QUOTA) 
    8282     * Collaborative Development Environment         
    8383         * Access to information on NEMO wiki reorganised through portals  for users/developers/System Team and complete refactoring of all wiki pages and their layout
