ADRICOSM is a Pilot Project that aims to implement an integrated coastal zone management system in the Adriatic Sea, consisting of a predictive circulation module and a river basin and wastewater management module. The aim is the prediction of coastal current variability in Near Real Time (NRT), and the monitoring and modelling of a river basin and wastewater system in a test site. In particular a shelf forecasting system will be created for the Northern Adriatic Sea, which will release weekly forecasts of currents for a six-month period. The implementation of an integrated system for planning and management of urban waste-waters will be carried out for a river test site on the Croatian coast line. In addition, the coastal forecasting model will be coupled asynchronously to the river basin management model. This Project involves directly the three Nations, Italy, Slovenia and Croatia, bordering the Northern Adriatic Sea, and French institutions. This project is supported by the Italian Ministry for the Environment and Territory (Department for Global Environment, International and Regional Conventions), and Croatian Ministry of science and Foundation
