    Field data of a harbour basin are compared with analytical formulations for predicting maximum scouring depth due to propeller jets. Spatial data analysis of seven-year biannual bathymetries quantifies the evolution of the ...
  • Analysis of the optimal deployment location for tidal energy converters in the mesotidal Ria de Vigo (NW Spain) 

    Mestres Ridge, Marc; Griño Colom, Maria; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Mösso Aranda, César (2016-11)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The potential power output expected from the installation of a tidal farm near the mesotidal Ria de Vigo (NW Spain) is assessed using two different tidal stream energy converters (TEC). For this, the results of a previous ...
  • Managing coastal environments under climate change: pathways to adaptation

    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    We investigate coherent structures present in oscillatory boundary layers over smooth and rough beds for Reynolds numbers between 103 and 104, in the transition to turbulence regime. A two-camera 2D- particle image velocimetry ...
  • A review of potential physical impacts on harbours in the Mediterranean Sea under climate change 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Brown, Sally; Casas-Prat, Mercè; Nicholls, Robert J.; Lionello, Piero; Conte, Dario (2016-12)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The potential impact of climate change on port operations and infrastructures has received much less attention than the corresponding impact for beach systems. However, ports have always been vulnerable to weather extremes ...
  • Vulnerability of Catalan (NW Mediterranean) ports to wave overtopping due to different scenarios of sea level rise 

    Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Casanovas, Ignacio; Mösso Aranda, César; Mestres Ridge, Marc; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2016-05)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The overtopping of port breakwaters may affect the assets located at the breakwater lee side. If adaptation measures are not taken, the sea level rise will increase the overtopping discharges putting those assets at ...
  • The trophic status of an Amazonian estuary under anthropogenic pressure (Brazil) 

    Cunha Monteiro Brenardi, Marcela; Pereira, Luci Cajueiro Carneiro; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2016-03)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The effects of the anthropogenic process on the trophic status of the Caete estuary (located 150 km southwest of the Amazon delta) were undertaken under different climate conditions. To do this, oceanographic data were ...
  • Modeling the benthic loading of particulate wastes from a gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata) farm during a complete rearing cycle 

    Mestres Ridge, Marc; Chaperón, Wilson; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo (2016-09)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The relationship between aquaculture activities and water quality plays an important role in determining the volume and quality of production as well as the impact of aquaculture on the aquatic environment. The natural ...
  • Wave energy potential along the Atlantic coast of Morocco
