    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)

    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

    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This study analyses the wave energy resource along the Atlantic coast of Morocco using a 44-year series of data obtained from numerical modeling (hindcasting). The spatial distribution of wave power is analyzed using data ...
  • Estuarine beaches of the Amazon coast: environmental and recreational characterization 

    de Sousa, Rosigleyse C.; Pereira, Luci Cajueiro Carneiro; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2016-03)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The Amazon coast is rich in natural resources, with highly valued natural landscapes and ecological systems. These environments include estuarine beaches, which are important areas for recreational activities. The present ...

    Present 3D printing technology allows the efficient design and construction of structures with complex shapes and high porosity satisfying biological and coastal protection demands. In this case, an array of ultra-porous ...
  • Future wave-driven coastal sediment transport along the Catalan coast (NW Mediterranean) 

    Casas Prat, Mercè; McInnes, Kathleen; Hemer, Mark A.; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo (2016-08)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    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
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    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 ...
