  • A sand-gravel Gilbert delta subject to base level change 

    Chavarrías Borrás, Víctor; Blom, Astrid; Orrú, Clara; Martín Vide, Juan Pedro; Viparelli, Enrica (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2018-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    Laboratory experiments were conducted on a sand-gravel Gilbert delta to gain insight on its dynamics under varying base level. Base level rise results in intensified aggradation over the topset, as well as a decrease in ...
  • Caracterización de la circulación superficial del mar en las proximidades del Delta del Ebro 

    Segura Morera, Oriol (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-09-28)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    La variabilidad de la circulación en el mediterráneo está determinada por el efecto de los procesos locales y remotos generados por el viento, así como de la configuración de la batimetría y la línea de orilla. En este ...

    Revuelta Diez, Eloi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2012-10)
    Minor thesis
    Open Access
    Con la presente tesina se realiza un estudio experimental, llevado a cabo en las instalaciones del Parque Tecnológico Agrópolis propiedad de la Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya, cuyo principal objetivo es reproducir y ...
  • Km-scale shoreline sand waves in the Western Mediterranean Sea 

    Falqués Serra, Albert; Ribas Prats, Francesca (Springer International Publishing, 2017)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A number of morphodynamic models have been developed to simulate the dynamics of large-scale bedform patterns on the continental shelf. Most of the models are based on linear stability analysis and, therefore, only ...
  • Sorting of a sand-gravel mixture in a Gilbert-type delta 

    Ferrer Boix, Carles; Martín Vide, Juan Pedro; Parker, Gary (2015-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents the results of a Gilbert-type delta progradation experiment within an impoundment created by a dam. The delta was composed of a poorly sorted sand-gravel mixture in a bedload-dominated environment. The ...
