    • Assessment and validation of bathymetric inversion techniques using synthetic waves 

      Luque Lozano, Pau (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-02-18)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Bathymetric inversion using video images is a new and promising technique in order to monitor beach morphology. In this TFG, a Boussinesq model called FunWave and a linear wave propagation routine will be used to create ...
    • Caracterització de la hidrodinàmica litoral amb dades de vídeo d'UAV 

      Nievas Salguero, Oscar Samuel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2022-10-24)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      This work aims to explore the potential of UAV-captured videos for the characterization of shoreline dynamics at time scales of seconds to minutes. A 2 min video recorded by a UAV at Playa de la Victoria in Cádiz, on a day ...
    • Development and interactions of surfzone morphological patterns 

      Swart, Rinse Leendert de (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2022-07-19)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      A variety of morphodynamic patterns are typically present in the nearshore zone of sandy beaches that develop due to the interactions between waves, currents and the morphology. The most common are one or several nearshore ...
    • 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 ...
    • Effect of sea level variations in the long-term dynamics of the Zandmotor mega-nourishment 

      Portos Amill, Laura (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      The Dutch coast is profoundly threatened by sand erosion and sea level rise due to climate change consequences. In order to keep the country save, the Dutch government is highly implicated in the renourishment of beaches ...
    • Estudi de la hidrodinàmica de tancs d’aqüicultura per a la criança de peixos 

      Anglès Domènech, Pablo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2008-07-09)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Pel correcte desenvolupament dels animals criats en tancs d’aqüicultura és important assegurar unes condicions d’entorn idònies per a la seva vida, però també cal optimitzar l’eficiència de la criança pel que fa a l’espai, ...
    • Improving the cross-shore transport approximation in coastal modelling in the face of climate change 

      Simó Romaguera, Xavier (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-07-12)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      The long-term evolution of sandy coasts is caused by gradients in the sediment transport, a very complex (and partially unknown) process driven by surface wave orbital motion and wave-driven mean currents. The corresponding ...
    • Long-term morphodynamic evolution of the Llobregat Delta under climate change conditions 

      Negre Dou, Miguel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-11-24)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Global warming will produce important effects at the coasts mainly due to sea level rise, which will increase the amount of inundation events and the erosion trends. The delta planes are particularly vulnerable because of ...
    • Modelling shoreface-connected sand ridges observed at the inner shelf of the Ebro delta 

      Tugores Rorbek, Francisco (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      The large amount of sand provided by coastal erosion in the river mouth and the combination between high-speed currents induced by Mistral wind and severe wave-storm events might have been the favourable conditions in the ...
    • Modelling the dynamics of large scale shoreline sand waves 

      Van den Berg, Niels (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-05-11)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Shoreline sand waves are shoreline undulations with a length scale of several kilometres and a time scale of years to decades. They occur on many coasts, migrating in the direction of the dominant littoral drift and they ...
    • Modelling the exchange of microplastics between the inner surf zone and the open sea under different beach configurations 

      Balboa Mato, David (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-11-30)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      This document shows the procedure carried out to model the Exchange of small plastics between the inland surfing area and the open sea under different beach configurations. The damage caused by plastics to the ocean and ...
