  • 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 ...
  • Wind variability in a coastal area (Alfacs Bay, Ebro River delta) 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Moré, Jordi; Bravo, Manel; Sairouní, Abdel; Espino Infantes, Manuel (2015-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Wind spatial heterogeneity in a coastal area (Alfacs Bay, northwestern Mediterranean Sea) is described using a set of observations and modelling results. Observations in three meteorological stations (during 2012–2013) ...
  • Impacts on wave-driven harbour agitation due to climate change in Catalan ports 

    Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Casas Prat, Mercè; Moesso, C; Virgili, Marc; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    The objective of the present work is to analyse how changes in wave patterns due to the effect of climate change can affect harbour agitation (oscillations within the port due to wind waves). The study focuses on 13 harbours ...
  • 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 ...
