was a Pilot Project that aimed 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 was the prediction of coastal
current variability in Near Real Time (NRT), and the monitoring and modeling
of a river basin and wastewater system in a test site.
This Project involves directly
three Nations bordering the Northern Adriatic Sea (Italy, Slovenia
and Croatia) and French institutions.
This project is supported by
the Italian Ministry for the Environment
and Territory (Department
for Global Environment, International and Regional Conventions).
