    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

    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 ...
  • 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

    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
