Thispap er dealswith the bora wind effect on the Adriatic Sea circulation ass imulated by a 3-D numerical code (the DieCAST model). The main result of this forcing is the formation of intense upwellings along the eastern coast in agreement with previous theoretical studies and observations. Different numerical experiments are discussed for various boundary and initial conditions to evaluate their influence on both circulation and upwelling patterns.
