AMICO stands for actions towards integrated operational coastal modeling funded by the French ”Minist`ere de l’Environnement, de l’Energie et de la Mer” in the framework of the COPERNICUS program. Coupled coastal ocean-wave-atmosphere modeling at high horizontal resolution (400- 1000m) using the ocean Model for Applications at Regional Scale (MARS3D), the third generation wind and wave model WaveWatchIII (WW3) and the non-hydrostatic mesoscale atmospheric model of the French research community (MesoNH). I aim to contrast two regions:
- The Iroise Sea, where a strong tidal current and an intense seasonal SST front interact with mesoscale weather systems and long fetch waves,
- The Mediterranean where intermittent upwellings occur due to strong wind events and the tide is weak.
