  • Three-dimensional simulation of pollutant dispersion in coastal waters 

    Mestres Ridge, Marc (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2002-07-15)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Traditionally, the sea has been considered as the ultimate sink of most pollutions, due to its huge volume and assimilating capacities, and the coastal waters, because of their intermediate position between deep seas and ...
  • 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 ...
  • Vulnerability of Catalan (NW Mediterranean) ports to wave overtopping due to different scenarios of sea level rise 

    Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Casanovas, Ignacio; Mösso Aranda, César; Mestres Ridge, Marc; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2016-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    The overtopping of port breakwaters may affect the assets located at the breakwater lee side. If adaptation measures are not taken, the sea level rise will increase the overtopping discharges putting those assets at ...
  • Wave energy potential along the Atlantic coast of Morocco 

    Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Martín Amer, César; Mösso Aranda, César; Mestres Ridge, Marc; Jebbad, Raghda (2016-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    This study analyses the wave energy resource along the Atlantic coast of Morocco using a 44-year series of data obtained from numerical modeling (hindcasting). The spatial distribution of wave power is analyzed using data ...
  • Wave reflection, transmission and spectral changes at permeable low-crested structures 

    Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Dowding, D.D.; Persetto, Vito; Oliveira, Tiago Castro Alves; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Mösso Aranda, César; Mestres Ridge, Marc (2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Physical model tests were carried out in order to improve the understanding about the hydrodynamic processes that take place around a LCS when it is under wave attack. In particular, the wave transmission and reflection ...
