      Article
      Open Access
      Flooding events can produce significant disturbances in underground transport systems within urban areas and lead to economic and socioenvironmental well-known consequences, which can be worsened by variations in the ...
    • Assessment of urban flood resilience in Barcelona for current and future scenarios: the RESCCUE project 

      Russo, Beniamino; Velasco, Marc; Locatelli, Luca; Sunyer, David; Yubero, Daniel; Monjo, Robert; Martínez Gomariz, Eduardo; Forero Ortiz, Edwar Andres; Sánchez Muñoz, Daniel; Evans, Barry; González Gómez, Andoni (2020-07)
      Article
      Open Access
      The results of recent climate projections for the city of Barcelona show a relevant increment of the maximum rainfall intensities for the period 2071–2100. Considering the city as a system of systems, urban resilience is ...
    • Citizens' perception of combined sewer overflow spills into bathing coastal areas 

      Martínez Gomariz, Eduardo; Guerrero Hidalga, María; Forero Ortiz, Edwar Andres; Gonzalez Blanco, Susana (2021-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      Once a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) exceeds its capacity, it is necessary to discharge a proportion of the flow to watercourses through combined sewer overflow (CSO) structures. In coastal urban areas, CSO spills may ...
