[en] A coarse resolution primitive equation model of 1/4 degrees resolution is implemented covering the whole Mediterranea Sea. Within this grid a 1/20 degrees resolution model of the Liguro-Provencal basin and the northern part of the Tyrrhenian Sea is embedded. A third fine resolution model of 1/60 degrees is nested in the latter one and simulates the dynamics of the Ligurian Sea. Comparisons between one-way and two-way nesting in simulating the Northern Current (NC) are made. The properties of the Eastern and Western Corsican Current and the Northern Current are investigated with this nesting system. Special attention is given to the variability of the NC. Meanders and interactions with Winter Intermediate Water lenses are shown. Topographic features also lead to a highly variable NC. (c) 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
