  • 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 ...
  • Analysis of current intensification in the NorthWest Mediterranean Shelf 

    Mestres Ridge, Marc; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2016-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Flow intensification episodes lasting more than 12 h are observed occasionally at different locations along the Northwestern Mediterranean coast. In the last years, these pulses have hindered ship operations outside the ...
  • Planform and mobility in the Meaípe-Maimbá embayed beach on the South East coast of Brazil 

    Albino, Jacqueline; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Oliveira, Tiago C.A. (2016-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The Meaipe-Maimba embayed beach (MMEB) on the south-east coast of Brazil has been subject to anthropogenic pressures since the 70's. In this study we discuss the adequacy and contribution of the parabolic planform model ...
  • Towards a new integrated beach management system: the ecosystem-based management system for beaches 

    Sarda Borroy, Rafael; Valls, Josep Francesc; Pintó, Josep; Ariza, Eduard; Lozoya, Juan Pablo; Fraguell, Rosa Maria; Martí, Carolina; Rucabado, Josep; Ramis, Juan; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2015-12)
    Article

    Massive use of beaches has forced traditional management of these systems to focus on the service offer to users. Consequently, human activity and behavior prevailed over other biological and physical processes and functions. ...
  • Novel multipurpose buoy for offshore wind profile measurements EOLOS platform faces validation at ijmuiden offshore metmast 

    Sospedra Iglesias, Joaquim; Cateura Sabrí, Jordi; Puigdefàbregas Sagristà, Joan (2015-07-01)

  • Shifting momentum balance and frictional adjustment observed over the inner-shelf during a storm 

    Grifoll Colls, Manel; Aretxabaleta, A.; Pelegrí Llopart, José Luis; Espino Infantes, Manuel (2015-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    We investigate the rapidly changing equilibrium between the momentum sources and sinks during the passage of a two-peak storm over the Catalan inner-shelf (NW Mediterranean Sea). Velocity measurements at 24 m water depth ...
  • Temporal evolution of the momentum balance terms and frictional adjustment observed over the inner shelf during a storm 

    Grifoll Colls, Manel; Aretxabaleta, A.; Pelegrí Llopart, José Luis; Espino Infantes, Manuel (2016-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We investigate the rapidly changing equilibrium between the momentum sources and sinks during the passage of a single two-peak storm over the Catalan inner shelf (NW Mediterranean Sea). Velocity measurements at 24¿m water ...
  • Shelf response to intense offshore wind 

    Grifoll Colls, Manel; Aretxabaleta, A.; Espino Infantes, Manuel (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2015-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Cross and along-shelf winds drive cross-shelf transport that promotes the exchange of tracers and nutrients to the open sea. The shelf response to cross-shelf winds is studied in the north shelf of the Ebro Delta (Mediterranean ...
  • Design optimization for a truncated catenary mooring system for scale model test 

    Molins i Borrell, Climent; Trubat Casal, Pau; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Campos Hortigüela, Alexis (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    One of the main aspects when testing floating offshore platforms is the scaled mooring system, particularly with the increased depths where such platforms are intended. The paper proposes the use of truncated mooring systems ...
