    Applying a methodology developed and tested in previous studies, the contribution from the ionospheric and plasmaspheric regions to the total electron content (measured by ground receivers) is analyzed. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Models for atmospheric propagation delays 

    Petrie, E.; Hernández Pajares, Manuel (International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service Central Bureau, 2012-08-10)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Techniques operated for the realization of the IERS reference systems make use of electromagnetic signals received on the surface of the Earth. During their transit of the atmosphere, the signals experience delays which ...
  • Novel ionospheric activity indicator specifically tailored for GNSS users 

    Sanz Subirana, Jaume; Juan Zornoza, José Miguel; González Casado, Guillermo; Prieto Cerdeira, Roberto; Schlüter, S.; Orús Pérez, Raul (The Institute of Navigation, 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - author's decision
    This work introduces a novel ionospheric activity indicator useful for identifying disturbed periods affecting performance for GNSS users, at regional level. This indicator is based in the “Along Arc TEC Rate (AATR) and ...
  • Numerical modeling of sound transmission in double walls 

    Poblet-Puig, Jordi; Vilaseca Cabo, Roger; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (European Acoustics Association, 2006)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Numerical models for the calculation of sound transmission in double walls are presented. The finite element method (FEM) or analytical solutions (for rectangular domains) are used for the acoustic part of the problem while ...
  • On maps with given jacobians involving the heat equation 

    Avinyó Andrés, Albert; Solà-Morales Rubió, Joan de; València Guitart, Marta (2000)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper we presennt and analyze two new algorithms to construct a smooth diffeomorphism of a domain with prescribed jacobian function. The first one is free from any restriction on the boundary, while the second ...
