    In this contribution we investigate the hydrodynamic response in a micro-tidal and shallow semi-enclosed domain. We chose a set of observations which include currents, hydrography and meteorological data obtained in Alfacs ...
  • Incorporation of continental and urban run-off into a coastal circulation model: application to the Catalan coast 

    Liste, Maria; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Keupers, Ingrid; Monbaliu, Jaak; Espino Infantes, Manuel (2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    A 3D hydrodynamical model has been set up to incorporate the continental and urban run-off into the Catalan Coastal waters. Particular attention was paid to introducing correctly the freshwater plumes and attention was ...
  • Meteo-oceanographic simulations and observations to assess the potential of offshore wind farm in a NW Mediterranean shelf 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; González Marco, Daniel; Sospedra Iglesias, Joaquim; Palomares, Ana; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Schuon, Frieder; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Pallarès López, Elena; Jiménez, Pedro Angel; Navarro, Jorge (Coastal Education Research Foundation (CERF), Coastal Processes Research Group, School of Marine Science and Engineering, Plymouth University, 2013)

  • Observing shoreline fluxes: implications for swash and surf zone modeling 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Grifoll Colls, Manel (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The scarcity of reliable and controlled observations of water and sediment fluxes near the shore is one of the main reasons for the many remaining challenges in the field of morphodynamics. In this paper we shall present ...
  • Operational forecast of beach morphodynamics: reliability and prediction limits
