    The fate and concentration of plastic pollutants in coastal seas depends on meteo-oceanographic factors and the multiple entry points in the domain. This will in turn control the implications for water quality, transmission ...
  • Motion compensation study for a floating Doppler wind lidar 

    Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Gutiérrez Antuñano, Miguel Ángel; Würth, Inés; Puigdefàbregas Sagristà, Joan; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)

    Transient Defence Measures (TDM) are defined as actions that can be taken in advance in the coastal zone in order to reduce the impacts of an specific forecasted storm event. The design of such transient works requires ...
  • Sand and transport process measurements under large-scale breaking waves 

    Van der Zanden, Joep; Van Der A, Dominic; Ribberink, Jan; O'Donoghue, Tom; Hurther, David; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Thorne, Peter D. (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The effects of wave breaking on sediment transport are studied through a new series of mobile-bed experiments in a large-scale wave flume. During the campaign, one experiment involving detailed sand transport process ...
  • Wind/Wave directional modelling: a compositional approach 

    Ortego Martínez, María Isabel; Egozcue Rubí, Juan José; Gómez Aguar, Jesús Javier; Mösso Aranda, César; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2015)
