  • Anàlisi de les observacions de vent realitzades al litoral català des de boies oceanogràfiques 

    Torra Trepat, Arnau (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-06-30)
    Minor thesis
    Open Access
    En l’actualitat, els mars i oceans, especialment la zona costanera, tenen un paper important en molts aspectes de la societat. El comportament del mar i de totes les forces que l’afecten influeix de forma decisiva en el ...
  • Anàlisi de l'impacte dels ports al litoral català 

    Llauradó Cuesta, Núria (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-01-24)
    Minor thesis

  • Assessing beach and dune erosion and vulnerability under sea level rise: a case study in the Mediterranean Sea 

    Rodríguez Enríquez, Alejandra; Marcos Moreno, Marta; Falqués Serra, Albert; Roelvink, Dano (2019-01-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this study, we estimate the shoreline retreat, the vulnerability and the erosion rates of an open beach-dune system under projected sea level rise (SLR) and the action of wind-waves (separately and in combination). The ...
  • Breaching of a barrier beach under extreme events: the role of morphodynamic simulations 

    Gracia Garcia, Vicente; García León, Manuel; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (Coastal Education Research Foundation (CERF), Coastal Processes Research Group, School of Marine Science and Engineering, Plymouth University, 2013)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A study of three breaching episodes of the Trabucador barrier beach (Spanish Mediterranean coast) is presented. The analysis is done from a modeling perspective using XBEACH and SWAN. The morphodynamic model (XBEACH) has ...
  • Effects of ultra-porous 3D printed reefs on wave kinematics 

    Frau, Lorenzoi; Marzeddu, Andrea; Dini, Enrico; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Eriolo, Alessio; Zomparelli, Alessandro; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2016-03)
    Conference lecture

    Present 3D printing technology allows the efficient design and construction of structures with complex shapes and high porosity satisfying biological and coastal protection demands. In this case, an array of ultra-porous ...
  • Las áreas de acceso preferencial, un instrumento de apoyo para la gestión de la sostenibilidad en las áreas marinas protegidas 

    Molina García, Agustín; García Aranda, César; Llanos Viña, Alfredo (UPC. Cátedra Unesco de Sostenibilidad, 2009-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    En el contexto de las Áreas Marinas Protegidas, el establecimiento de áreas de acceso preferencial permite, mediante la incorporación de criterios de propiedad y de exclusividad de uso de los recursos marinos, aportar ...
  • Self-organized morphological patterns in coastal dynamics 

    Falqués Serra, Albert; Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Van den Berg, Niels; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Fernández Mora, Ma. Àngels; Caballeria Suriñach, Miquel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Escola Tècnica Superior d'Enginyers de Camins Canals i Ports de Barcelona, 2011-11-16)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    the meaning and significance of self-organization processes in coastal morphodynamics is presented. Two types of coastal self-organized patterns are discussed: crescentic bars in the surf zone and free shoreline sand waves ...
  • Shoreline instability due to very oblique wave incidence: some remarks on the physics 

    Falqués Serra, Albert; Calvete Manrique, Daniel; Ribas Prats, Francesca (2011-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Previous research has shown that a very oblique wave incidence on a coast may render a rectilinear shoreline unstable. Here, we present some further insight into the physics of such instability. The obliqueness of wave ...
  • The present state of the Liberian coast: contributions to coastal vulnerability and coastal protection masterplan 

    Mayson II, John C L (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06-15)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  Norges teknisk-naturvitenskapelige universitet / Technische Universiteit Delft / University of Southampton / City University
    This thesis aims to provide a general overview of the present state of the coast of Liberia, carrying out an integral characterization (that will include weather, geology, litoral cells, etc.). This characterization will ...
