    22 TOP (Tracers in the Ocean Paradigm) is the NEMO hardwired interface toward biogeochemical models and provide the physical constraints/boundaries for oceanic tracers.  It consists of a modular framework to handle multiple ocean tracers, including also a variety of built-in modules.  TOP interfaces has the following location in the code repository 
     22TOP (Tracers in the Ocean Paradigm) is the NEMO hardwired interface toward biogeochemical models and provide the physical constraints/boundaries for oceanic tracers.  It consists of a modular framework to handle multiple ocean tracers, including also a variety of built-in modules. 
     23 
     24This component of the NEMO framework allows one to exploit available modules (see below) and further develop a range of applications, spanning from the implementation of a dye passive tracer to evaluate dispersion processes (by means of MY_TRC), track water masses age (AGE module), assess the ocean interior penetration of persistent chemical compounds (e.g., gases like CFC or even PCBs), up to the full set of equations involving marine biogeochemical cycles.

    36 The usage of TOP is activated by i) including in the configuration definition the component '''TOP_SRC''' and ii) adding the macro '''key_top''' in the configuration cpp file. 
    37  
    38 As an example, the user can refer to simplest configurations already available in the code GYRE_BFM or GYRE_PISCES. 
     40The usage of TOP is activated by i) including in the configuration definition  the component '''TOP_SRC''' and ii) adding the macro '''key_top''' in the configuration cpp file (see for more details [http://forge.ipsl.jussieu.fr/nemo/wiki/Users "Learn more about the model"]). 
     41 
     42As an example, the user can refer to already available configurations in the code '''GYRE_PISCES''' as the NEMO biogeochemical demonstrator and '''GYRE_BFM''' to see the required configuration elements to couple with an external biogeochemical model (see also in Section 4) .
