  • A physical-based statistical method for modeling ocean wave heights 

    Casas Prat, Mercè; Wang, Xiaolan L; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo (2013-10-30)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This study proposes a computationally inexpensive statistical method for modeling ocean wave heights, focusing particularly on modeling wave heights in near-shore areas. A multiple linear regression is used to predict ...
  • Effects of climate change on wave climate and consequent coastal impacts : application to the Catalan coast (NW Mediterranean Sea) 

    Casas Prat, Mercè (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-01-20)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
  • Future scenario simulations of wave climate in the NW Mediterranean sea 

    Casas Prat, Mercè; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo (2011-05-11)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this study, 20-year wave climate simulations (1991-2010 and 2081-2100) were performed and analysed in the NW Mediterranean with a fine resolution of 1/8º. The forcing wind was obtained from the ENSEMBLES project, including ...
  • Future wave-driven coastal sediment transport along the Catalan coast (NW Mediterranean) 

    Casas Prat, Mercè; McInnes, Kathleen; Hemer, Mark A.; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo (2016-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In the context of climate change, this study evaluates the impact on the long-shore and cross-shore sediment transport (LST and CST) along the Catalan coast (NW Mediterranean Sea) derived from climate projections obtained ...
  • Impacts on wave-driven harbour agitation due to climate change in Catalan ports 

    Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Casas Prat, Mercè; Moesso, C; Virgili, Marc; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    The objective of the present work is to analyse how changes in wave patterns due to the effect of climate change can affect harbour agitation (oscillations within the port due to wind waves). The study focuses on 13 harbours ...
  • Overview of ocean wave statistics 

    Casas Prat, Mercè (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2008-06-27)
    Minor thesis
    Open Access
    Per tal de predir les elevacions extremes de l’onatge, la comprensió dels estadístics de l’alçada de l’ona esdevé un factor clau per a l’enginyeria civil, especialment per a raons de seguretat i prevenció. Aquest estudi, ...
  • Trend analysis of the wave storminess: the wave direction 

    Casas Prat, Mercè; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo (2009)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In this paper changes in the wave pattern of the Catalan coast are analyzed in terms of wave storminess and wave direction based on series of 44 years of hindcast wave data. The analysis is performed employing two different ...
  • Trend analysis of wave storminess: wave direction and its impact on harbour agitation 

    Casas Prat, Mercè; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo (2010-11-19)
    Article
    Open Access
    In the context of wave climate variability, longterm alterations in the wave storminess pattern of the Catalan coast (northwestern Mediterranean Sea) are analysed in terms of wave energy content and wave direction, on the ...
