Apply more or less same modifications on TOP as for SI3 for compliance
Despite remaining issues with references, TOP manual can be build like NEMO & SI3 with ./build_manual.sh TOP
For the record, the building of the 3 manuals can be launched with ./manual_build.sh all

12The usage of TOP is activated
13
14\begin{itemize}
15         \item by including in the configuration definition the component TOP\_SRC
16         \item by adding the macro \textit{key\_top} in the configuration cpp file
17\end{itemize}
18
19As an example, the user can refer to already available configurations in the code, GYRE\_PISCES being the NEMO biogeochemical demonstrator and GYRE\_BFM to see the required configuration elements to couple with an external biogeochemical model (see also section \S\ref{SMS_models}) .
20
21Note that, since version 4.0, TOP interface core functionalities are activated by means of logical keys and all submodules preprocessing macros from previous versions were removed.
22
23There are only three specific keys remaining in TOP
24
25\begin{itemize}
26        \item \textit{key\_top} : to enables passive tracer module
27        \item \textit{key\_trdtrc} and \textit{key\_trdmxl\_trc} : trend computation for tracers
28\end{itemize}
29
30For a remind, the revisited structure of TOP interface now counts for five different modules handled in namelist\_top :
31
32\begin{itemize}
33        \item \textbf{PISCES}, default BGC model
34        \item \textbf{MY\_TRC}, template for creation of new modules couplings (maybe run a single passive tracer)
35        \item \textbf{CFC}, inert carbon tracers dynamics (CFC11,CFC12,SF6) Updated with OMIP-BGC guidelines (Orr et al, 2016)
36        \item \textbf{C14}, radiocarbon passive tracer
37        \item \textbf{AGE}, water age tracking revised implementation
38\end{itemize}
39
40The modular approach was implemented also in the definition of the total number of passive tracers (jptra). This results from to user setting from the namelist \textit{namtrc}
