  • A MSFD complementary approach for the assessment of pressures, knowledge and data gaps in Southern European Seas: the PERSEUS experience 

    Crise, A.; Kaberi, H; Ruiz, J; Zatsepin, A; Arashkevich, E; Giani, M; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2015-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    PERSEUS project aims to identify the most relevant pressures exerted on the ecosystems of the Southern European Seas (SES), highlighting knowledge and data gaps that endanger the achievement of SES Good Environmental Status ...
  • Hydrodynamic response in a microtidal and shallow bay under energetic wind and seiche episodes 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Espino Infantes, Manuel (2015-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    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 ...
  • Wave energy balance in wave models (SWAN) for semi-enclosed domains: application to the Catalan coast 

    Pallarès López, Elena; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Espino Infantes, Manuel (2014-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This study has been motivated by the limited accuracy of wave models under short-duration, fetch-limited conditions. This applies particularly to the wave period, in semi-enclosed domains with highly variable wind patterns ...
  • Analysis of the influence of river discharge and wind on the Ebro turbid plume using MODIS-Aqua and MODIS-Terra data 

    Fernandez Novoa, D; Mendes, R; De Castro, M; Dias, J. M; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Gomez Gesteira, Moncho (2015-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The turbid plume formed at many river mouths influences the adjacent coastal area because it transports sediments, nutrients, and pollutants.; The effects of the main forcings affecting the Ebro turbid plume were analyzed ...
  • Seasonal circulation over the Catalan inner-shelf (northwest Mediterranean Sea) 

    Grifoll Colls, Manel; Aretxabaleta, A.; Pelegrí Llopart, José Luis; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Wagner, John C; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2013-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    This study characterizes the seasonal cycle of the Catalan inner-shelf circulation using observations and complementary numerical results. The relation between seasonal circulation and forcing mechanisms is explored through ...
  • Hydro morphodynamic modelling in Mediterranean storms: errors and uncertainties under sharp gradients 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; García León, Manuel (2014-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper deals with the limits in hydrodynamic and morphodynamic predictions for semi-enclosed coastal domains subject to sharp gradients (in bathymetry, topography, sediment transport and coastal damages). It starts ...
  • Tidal transformation and resonance in a short, microtidal Mediterranean estuary (Alfacs Bay in Ebre delta) 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Valle Levinson, Arnoldo; Espino Infantes, Manuel (2014-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Tidal and subtidal waves are analyzed with sea-level data and numerical modeling in a short and micro-tidal embayment, Alfacs Bay (NW Mediterranean Sea). Data analysis exhibits tidal wave amplification and seiching ...
  • 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 ...
  • Uses and misuses of compositional data in sedimentology 

    Tolosana Delgado, Raimon (2012-12)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper serves two goals. The first part shows how mass evolution processes of different nature become undistinguishable once we take a size-limited, noisy sample of its compositional fingerprint: processes of exponential ...
  • Lagrangian simulation of suspended sediment in the swash zone 

    Alsina Torrent, José María; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Sospedra Iglesias, Joaquim; Baldock, Tom E. (2009-01-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A numerical model is presented to simulate the sediment transport and beach morphology in the swash zone. The model resolves the non-linear shallow water equations in an Eulerian framework and then solves the advection-diffusion ...
