  • Characterization of bottom sediment resuspension events observed in a micro-tidal bay 

    Grifoll Colls, Manel; Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Guillén Aranda, Jorge; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Boye Hansen, Lars; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2019-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this study we investigate the variability in near-bottom turbidity in Alfacs Bay (in the northwestern Mediterranean Sea). The bay is characterized by a micro-tidal environment and seiching activity that may lead to flow ...
  • Hydrodynamic response in a microtidal and shallow bay under energetic wind and seiche episodes 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Espino Infantes, Manuel (2015-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this contribution we investigate the hydrodynamic response in a micro-tidal and shallow semi-enclosed domain. We chose a set of observations which include currents, hydrography and meteorological data obtained in Alfacs ...
  • Hydrodynamic response of a shallow and microtidal estuary : Alfacs Bay. From high to low frequency processes 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-07-24)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Using both observations and modelling tools, it is investigated the main hydrodynamic response mechanisms of a microtidal and shallow bay in the Mediterranean Sea: Alfacs Bay. Main objectives are considered using differenttim ...
  • Modeling circulation patterns induced by spatial cross-shore wind variability in a small-size coastal embayment 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Grifoll Colls, Manel (2016-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    This contribution shows the importance of the cross-shore spatial wind variability in the water circulation in a small-sized micro-tidal bay. The hydrodynamic wind response at Alfacs Bay (Ebro River delta, NW Mediterranean ...
  • Modelling assessment of the tidal stream resource in the Ria of Ferrol (NW Spain) using a year-long simulation 

    Mestres Ridge, Marc; Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Espino Infantes, Manuel (Elsevier, 2019-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The availability of tidal stream energy in the Ría of Ferrol (NW Spain) has been assessed using a long term hydrodynamic simulation (351 days). A priori, a strait in the central part of the estuary seems a promising site ...
  • Operational forecasting as a tool for managing pollutant dispersion and recovery 

    Mestres Ridge, Marc; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; González Marco, Daniel; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Álvarez Fanjul, Enrique; García Sotillo, Marcos; Capella, Salvador; Mora, Javier; Llinás, Octavio; Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo (2016)
    Conference lecture

    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 ...
  • Operational oceanography at the service of the ports 

    Álvarez Fanjul, Enrique; García Sotillo, Marcos; Pérez Gómez, Begoña; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Mestres Ridge, Marc; Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2018)
    Part of book or chapter of book

    The implementation of operational oceanography in the past 15 years has provided many societal benefits and has led to many countries adopting a formal roadmap for providing ocean forecasts. Continuing the tradition of two ...
  • Subtidal circulation in a microtidal Mediterranean bay 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Grifoll Colls, Manel; ValleLevinson, Arnoldo (2018-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    We examine the role of different forcings on the subtidal circulation in a microtidal bay with freshwater inputs in the NW Mediterranean Sea: Alfacs Bay. Observations of subtidal flow in summer 2013 and winter 2014 reveal ...
  • The SAMOA project: downscalling operational oceanography for improving Harbour operations 

    Álvarez Fanjul, Enrique; García Sotillo, Marcos; Pérez Gómez, Begoña; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Mestres Ridge, Marc; Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (European Global Ocean Observing System (EuroGOOS), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    SAMOA is a revolution in the way solutions are provided to the Operational Oceanography needs of the Port Authorities. An integrated system, ultimately based on CMEMS data, has been developed. A total of 10 new high-resolution ...
  • Tidal transformation and resonance in a short, microtidal Mediterranean estuary (Alfacs Bay in Ebre delta) 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Valle Levinson, Arnoldo; Espino Infantes, Manuel (2014-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Tidal and subtidal waves are analyzed with sea-level data and numerical modeling in a short and micro-tidal embayment, Alfacs Bay (NW Mediterranean Sea). Data analysis exhibits tidal wave amplification and seiching ...
  • Use of a hydrodynamic model for the management of water renovation in a coastal system 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Fernández Pedrera, Marta; Mestres Ridge, Marc; Fernández, Margarita; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2019-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this contribution we investigate the hydrodynamic response in Alfacs Bay (Ebro Delta, NW Mediterranean Sea) to different anthropogenic modifications in freshwater flows and inner bay–open sea connections. The fresh water ...
