    • Characteristics and dynamics of crescentic bar events in an open, tideless beach 

      Swart, Rinse Leendert de; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Ruessink, Gerben; Simarro, Gonzalo; Guillén Aranda, Jorge (2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Crescentic bar events at Castelldefels beach (NW Mediterranean) have been characterised using a 4.25 years dataset (October 2010-December 2014) of time-exposure video images. Crescentic bars are observed during 41% of ...
    • Impact of mean sea-level rise on the long-term evolution of a mega-nourishment 

      Ribas Prats, Francesca; Portos Amill, Laura; Falqués Serra, Albert; Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso; Marcos Moreno, Marta; Ruessink, Gerben (Springer Nature, 2023-05-15)
      Article
      Open Access
      Mean sea-level rise (MSLR) will induce shoreline recession, increasing the stress on coastal systems of high socio-economic and environmental values. Localized mega-nourishments are meant to alleviate erosion problems by ...
    • Long-term and large-scale modeling of mega-nourishments 

      Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso; Rutten, Jantien; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Ruessink, Gerben; Falqués Serra, Albert (2016)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The Sand Engine, ZM (Zandmotor), is a hook-shaped mega-nourishment (21.5 millions m³) located on the Dutch coast with an alongshore length of 2.4 km and an offshore extension of 1 km. The mega-nourishment project ...
    • Long-term performance of mega-nourishments: Role of directional wave climate and initial geometry 

      Arriaga García, Jaime; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Falqués Serra, Albert; Rutten, Jantien; Ruessink, Gerben (MDPI, 2020-12-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Concentrated mega-nourishments, built as coastal protection measures for decadal time scales,are intended to diffuse, that is to erode and to supply sand to the nearby beaches and dunes by profitingof the natural drivers. ...
    • Modeling the long-term diffusion and feeding capability of a mega-nourishment 

      Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso; Rutten, Jantien; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Falqués Serra, Albert; Ruessink, Gerben (2017-03-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      A morphodynamic model based on the wave-driven alongshore sediment transport, including cross-shore transport in a simplified way and neglecting tides, is presented and applied to the Zandniotor mega-nourishment on the ...
    • Modelling long-term morphodynamic evolution of mega-nourishments 

      Arriaga García, Jaime; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Falqués Serra, Albert; Rutten, Jantien; Ruessink, Gerben (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2019)

    • Modelling of mega-nourishments 

      Arriaga García, Jaime Alonso; Rutten, Jantien; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Ruessink, Gerben; Falqués Serra, Albert (2016)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The Sand Engine is a hook-shaped mega-nourishment (21.5 Mm³) located in the Dutch coast with an alongshore length of 2.4 km and an offshore extension of 1 km. The mega-nourishment project was initiated as a coastal ...
    • MODEX: Laboratory experiment exploring sediment spreading of a mound under waves and currents 

      de Schipper, Matthieu; Hopkins, Julia; Wengrove, Meagan E.; Saxoni, Ioanna; Kleinhans Maarten, G.; Senechal, Nadia; Castelle, Bruno; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Ruessink, Gerben; Murphy, Brendan; McLelland, Stuart J. (World Scientific, 2019)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The dispersal of sand from submerged mounds in the nearshore is driven by the interplay of processes such as converging and recirculating flows, changing roughness, bed slope effects and wave focusing/refraction. ...
    • Observations and modeling of surf zone transverse finger bars at the Gold Coast, Australia 

      Ribas Prats, Francesca; ten Doeschate, Anneke; Swart, Huib E. de; Ruessink, Gerben; Calvete Manrique, Daniel (2014-08-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The occurrence and characteristics of transverse finger bars at Surfers Paradise (Gold Coast, Australia) have been quantified with 4 years of time-exposure video images. These bars are attached to the inner terrace and ...
    • The potential risk induced by climate change in the context of mega-nourishments
