  • Generation and nonlinear evolution os shore-oblique/transverse sand bars 

    Garnier, Roland; Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Falqués Serra, Albert; Caballeria Suriñach, Miquel (2006-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    The coupling between topography, waves and currents in the surf zone may self-organize to produce the formation of shore-transverse or shore-oblique sand bars on an otherwise alongshore uniform beach. In the absence of ...
  • Modelling shoreline sand waves: application to the coast of Namibia 

    Falqués Serra, Albert; Van den Berg, Niels; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Caballeria Suriñach, Miquel (2011)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The SW coast of Africa (Namibia and part of Angola) features very long sandy beaches and a wave climate dominated by energetic swells from the SSW, therefore approaching the coast with a very high obliquity. Satellite ...
  • Potential instabilities of Catalan coastline induced by high-angle waves 

    Caballeria Suriñach, Miquel; Falqués Serra, Albert; Van den Berg, Niels (2011)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The relatively long sandy beaches of El Maresme, and the bimodal wave climate of the Catalan coast, with dominant E-ENE and SSW waves that leads to high angle of incidence, propitiate good conditions for high angle of wave ...
  • Self-organized morphological patterns in coastal dynamics 

    Falqués Serra, Albert; Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Van den Berg, Niels; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Fernández Mora, Ma. Àngels; Caballeria Suriñach, Miquel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Escola Tècnica Superior d'Enginyers de Camins Canals i Ports de Barcelona, 2011-11-16)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    the meaning and significance of self-organization processes in coastal morphodynamics is presented. Two types of coastal self-organized patterns are discussed: crescentic bars in the surf zone and free shoreline sand waves ...
  • Shoreline sand waves along the catalan coast 

    Falqués Serra, Albert; Caballeria Suriñach, Miquel; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Van den Berg, Niels (2013)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The beach of Calella, north of Barcelona, in the Catalan coast, features a series of shoreline sand waves with wavelengths ranging from 700 to 1400 m that match with similar undulations in the -5 m bathymetric line. ...
  • What determines the wavelength of self-organized shoreline sand waves? 

    Falqués Serra, Albert; Van den Berg, Niels; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Caballeria Suriñach, Miquel (2012)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Shoreline undulations extending into the bathymetric contours with a length scale larger than that of the rhythmic surf zone bars are referred to as shoreline sand waves. Many observed undulations along sandy coasts display ...
