An example of a simple namcouple

The following simple namcouple configures a run into which e.g. an ocean, an atmosphere and an atmospheric chemistry components are coupled. The ocean running on grid toce provides only the SOSSTSST field to the atmosphere (grid atmo), which in return provides the field CONSFTOT to the ocean. One field COSENHFL is exchanged from the atmosphere to the atmospheric chemistry (also running on grid atmo), and one field SOALBEDO is read from a file by the ocean.
