  • Dynamics of large-scale shoreline perturbations 

    Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-07-30)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Shorelines around the world are rarely smooth and they can present undulations and cuspate shapes. On the one hand, human actions can cause shoreline perturbations via beach nourishments, which in turn perturb the wave ...
  • Formation and destruction events of shoreline sand waves 

    Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso; Falqués Serra, Albert; Ribas Prats, Francesca (2017)
    Conference report

  • Formation and destruction of shoreline sand waves: observations and modelling 

    Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso; Falqués Serra, Albert; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Crews, Eddie (2017)
    Conference report

  • Formation mechanisms for self-organized kilometer-scale shoreline sand waves 

    Falqués Serra, Albert; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Idier, Déborah; Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso (2017-05-16)
    Article
    Open Access
    The feedbacks between morphology and waves through sediment transport are investigated as a source of kilometer-scale shoreline sand waves. In particular, the observed sand waves along Srd. Holmslands Tange, Denmark, are ...
  • Km-scale shoreline sand waves: Numerical modelling and observations 

    Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Mariño-Tapia, Ismael; Falqués Serra, Albert (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Km-scale shoreline sand waves have been studied with a quasi two dimensional model (Q2D-morfo model) and with observations from a populated coastal zone in Yucatán (México) with frequent human interventions. The model ...
  • Long-term and large-scale modeling of mega-nourishments 

    Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso; Rutten, Jantien; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Ruessink, Gerben; Falqués Serra, Albert (2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The Sand Engine, ZM (Zandmotor), is a hook-shaped mega-nourishment (21.5 millions m³) located on the Dutch coast with an alongshore length of 2.4 km and an offshore extension of 1 km. The mega-nourishment project ...
  • Modeling the long-term diffusion and feeding capability of a mega-nourishment 

    Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso; Rutten, Jantien; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Falqués Serra, Albert; Ruessink, Gerben (2017-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    A morphodynamic model based on the wave-driven alongshore sediment transport, including cross-shore transport in a simplified way and neglecting tides, is presented and applied to the Zandniotor mega-nourishment on the ...
  • Modelling of mega-nourishments 

    Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso; Rutten, Jantien; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Ruessink, Gerben; Falqués Serra, Albert (2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The Sand Engine is a hook-shaped mega-nourishment (21.5 Mm³) located in the Dutch coast with an alongshore length of 2.4 km and an offshore extension of 1 km. The mega-nourishment project was initiated as a coastal ...
  • Self-organized kilometer-scale shoreline sand wave generation: sensitivity to model and physical parameters 

    Idier, Déborah; Falqués Serra, Albert; Rohmer, Jérémy; Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso (2017-09-19)
    Article
    Open Access
    The instability mechanisms for self-organized kilometer-scale shoreline sand waves have been extensively explored by modeling. However, while the assumed bathymetric perturbation associated with the sand wave controls the ...
  • The potential risk induced by climate change in the context of mega-nourishments 

    Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso; Rutten, Jantien; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Ruessink, Gerben; Falqués Serra, Albert (2016)
