  • Impact of climate change on wave energy resource: the case of Menorca (Spain) 

    Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Casas Prat, Mercè; Campins, E (2017-02)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The aim of this paper was to analyse how changes in wave patterns, due to the effect of climate change, can affect wave energy power and yield around Menorca (NW Mediterranean Sea). The present and future wave energy ...
  • Management of estuarine beaches on the Amazon coast though the application of recreational carrying capacity indices 

    de Sousa, Rosigleyse C.; Pereira, Luci Cajueiro Carneiro; da Costa, Rauquírio Marinho; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2017-04)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The purpose of this paper is to determine the Recreational Carrying Capacity of three estuarine beaches (Colares, Marudá and Murubira) on the Amazon coast of Brazil, based on the combined assessment of natural conditions ...
  • Impacts of sea-level rise-induced erosion on the Catalan coast 

    Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Valdemoro Garcia, Herminia; Bosom García, Eva; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Nicholls, Robert J. (2017-02)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The Catalan coast as most of the developed Mediterranean coastal zone is characterized by the coincidence of stresses and pressures on the natural system with a high exposure and low adaptive capacity. Due to this, climate ...
  • Measuring wave impact induced pressures with a pressure mapping system 

    Stagonas, Dimitris; Marzeddu, Andrea; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Muller, Gerald (2016-06)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The use of a pressuremapping system formeasuring wave impact induced pressures is evaluated in this paper. A set-up and a calibrationmethodology are suggested and employed for thiswork. The system is validated against ...
  • Modeling circulation patterns induced by spatial cross-shore wind variability in a small-size coastal embayment 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Grifoll Colls, Manel (2016-08)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This contribution shows the importance of the cross-shore spatial wind variability in the water circulation in a small-sized micro-tidal bay. The hydrodynamic wind response at Alfacs Bay (Ebro River delta, NW Mediterranean ...
  • Erosion caused by propeller jets in a low energy harbour basin 

    Mujal Colilles, Anna; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Puig i Polo, Càrol; García León, Manuel (2017-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    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 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; García León, Manuel; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Devoy, Robert; Stanica, Adrian; Gault, Jeremy (2016-12)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper deals with the question of how to manage vulnerable coastal systems so as to make them sustainable under present and future climates. This is interpreted in terms of the coastal functionality, mainly natural ...
  • Coherent structures in oscillatory flows within the laminar-to-turbulent transition regime for smooth and rough walls 

    Mujal Colilles, Anna; Christensen, Kenneth T.; Bateman Pinzón, Allen; Garcia, Marcelo Horacio (2016-04)
    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 ...
