El LIM/UPC (Dept. E.H.M.A. de la ETSECCPB) està format per investigadors altament qualificats i de disciplines tecnicocientífiques diverses. Les línies de treball són: hidrodinàmica costanera i estuariana, clima i qualitat del medi ambient marí, física i enginyeria oceanogràfiques, enginyeria i morfologia costanera, enginyeria portuària, i gestió de la zona costanera i els recursos costaners.
El LIM/UPC ha desenvolupat un avançat conjunt de models numèrics i disposa d’una infraestructura de laboratori i camp per al vessant experimental dels projectes desenvolupats (destaca el canal d’onatge ICTS-CIEM, tercer en importància a la UE).

The Maritime Engineering Laboratory (LIM/UPC) of the Technical University of Catalonia has long-standing experience in the field of maritime engineering. It is a unit of the Department of Hydraulic, Maritime and Environmental Engineering of the School of Civil Engineering of Barcelona. The LIM/UPC is made up of a team of highly qualified professionals who have solid experience and come from different technical and scientific disciplines (mathematics, physics, geology, civil engineering, oceanography, etc.), who are organised into specialised workgroups that are well-coordinated among themselves. This enables a naturally multidisciplinary approach to the services offered. The basic aims are to undertake basic and applied research, to develop oceanographic and maritime technology, to draw up training programmes for different levels and to organise dissemination activities in the maritime and coastal engineering fields. The main research lines are coastal and estuarine hydrodynamics, maritime environment climate

    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 ...
  • A multivariate statistical model of extreme events: an application to the Catalan coast 

    Lin Ye, Jue; García León, Manuel; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2016-11)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Wave extreme events can be understood as the combination of Storm-intensity, Directionality and Intra-time distribution. However, the dependence structure among these factors is still unclear. A methodology has been developed ...
  • Natural and human controls of water quality of an Amazon estuary (Caeté-PA, Brazil) 

    Cunha Monteiro Brenardi, Marcela; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Cajueiro Carneiro, Luci (2016-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Estuarine waters are usually eutrophic due to nutrients input derived from natural and anthropogenic sources. In the Caete Estuary, nutrients and thermotolerant coliforms input is intensified by the absence of a public ...
  • Ocean–atmosphere–wave characterisation of a wind jet (Ebro shelf, NW Mediterranean Sea) 

    Grifoll Colls, Manel; Navarro, Jorge; Pallarès López, Elena; Ràfols Bundó, Laura; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Palomares, Ana (University of Thechnology and Agriculture Nicholas Copernicus University, 2016-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this contribution the wind jet dynamics in the northern margin of the Ebro River shelf (NW Mediterranean Sea) are investigated using coupled numerical models. The study area is characterised by persistent and energetic ...
