    • A new shoreline instability mechanism related to high-angle waves 

      Falqués Serra, Albert; Kakeh Burgada, Nabil; Calvete Manrique, Daniel (2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      A new shoreline instability triggered by high-angle waves and leading to sand wave formation is investigated. In contrast with the well-known high angle wave instability, which involves both the surf and shoaling zones and ...
    • 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 ...
    • Aplicació de les tècniques de sísmica passiva per caracteritzar sediments no consolidats 

      Peix Tarres, Miquel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-06-25)
      Minor thesis
      Open Access
      La sísmica passiva és un mètode de prospecció geofísica que es basa en l'enregistrament i posterior processat del soroll sísmic per obtenir la variació en fondària de la velocitat de les ones de cizalla. La sísmica passiva ...
    • Caracterización de sedimentos en el Port de Barcelona 

      Guerra García, Rosa María; Martín Polo, Ricardo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2001-06)

    • Desarrollo de herramientas para la evaluación preliminar de la peligrosidad de corrientes detríticas 

      Bregoli, Francesco; Bateman Pinzón, Allen; Medina Iglesias, Vicente César de; Hurlimann Ziegler, Marcel (2010)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Con el objetivo de proporcionar recomendaciones para la alerta temprana de fenómenos potencialmente desencadenantes de corrientes detríticas (“Debris Flow”), uno de los temas principales es la identificación preliminar de ...
    • Experimental study in bed erosion induced by twin propeller in unconfined conditions 

      Bayona Visiedo, Pau (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-06-23)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Scouring processes due to the navigation and manoeuvring of ships can generate stability problems to harbour’s structures. At the same time, the eroded material is settled in other areas, reducing the water level. ...
    • Geoquímica ambiental lipídica dels aiguamolls de la bòbila de Santpedor 

      Estrada Taña, Albert (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-07)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      En aquest treball s’han analitzat, mitjançant espectrometria de masses acoblada a un cromatògraf de gasos, unes mostres de sediments i d’aigua de l’aiguamoll de la Bòbila de Santpedor. Les mostres van ser recollides l’any ...
    • Gestión sostenible en la remediación de suelos contaminados: enfoques y aplicación a un caso de estudio 

      Demuru, Emanuele (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-10)
      Master thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      En el presente trabajo se evaluaron la sostenibilidad y los impactos ambientales relacionados a las obras de una descontaminación de un suelo ligeramente contaminado por hidrocarburos, en especifico por diesel. El caso ...
    • Resuspension and control of reservoir sediments by surface waves and point absorbers 

      Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las (International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), 2018)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      This work is intended to investigate the deliberate generation of mild waves on the surface of reservoirs and the use of a farm of point absorbers, floating buoys or akin technology, to convert the energy transported by ...
    • Simulating badland erosion with KINEROS2 in a small Mediterranean mountain basin (Vallcebre, Eastern Pyrenees) 

      Martinez-Carreras, N; Soler, M; Hernández Chiva, Emilio; Gallart, F (2006-05-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The Ca lʻIsard catchment (1.32 km2), a sub-basin of the Vallcebre experimental catchments, yields large amounts of sediments (about 580 Mg km− 2 year− 1) that are produced in relatively small but very active eroded areas ...
    • The effects of sediment depth and oxygen concentration on the use of organic matter: an experimental study using an infiltration sediment tank 

      Freixa, Anna; Rubol, Simonetta; Carles Brangari, Albert; Fernández García, Daniel; Butturini, Andrea; Sánchez Vila, Francisco Javier; Romani Cornet, Anna Maria (2015-04-02)
      Article
      Open Access
      Water flowing through hyporheic river sediments or artificial recharge facilities promotes the development of microbial communities with sediment depth. We performed an 83-day mesocosm infiltration experment, to study ...
