  • Erosive and accretive mobile bed experiments in large scale tests 

    Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (World Scientific Publishing, 2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Traditionally data and analysis for erosive or Accretive wave conditions have been carried out at relatively small scales and without enough spatial coverage or resolution. This limits the in depth analysis and does not ...
  • Natural accretion mechanisms: the role in future coastal sustainability 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; García León, Manuel; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Valdemoro Garcia, Herminia (World Scientific Publishing, 2015)
    Conference report
