    Hernandez, Ivan; Castro Rosero, Leidy Maricela; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Alsina Torrent, José María (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2024-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    The transport mechanisms of floating marine debris in coastal zones remain poorly understood due to complex geometries and the influence of coastal processes, posing difficulties in incorporating them into Lagrangian ...
  • Influence of a changing wave climate on the quality and morphometry of the stalked barnacle Pollicipes pollicipes (Gmelin, 1789), along the coasts of NW Iberia 

    Peñas Torramilans, Raquel; Outeiral, Raquel; Santiago Calvo, José Manuel; Vázquez Otero, Elsa Vázquez; Weidberg, Nicolas (Springer, 2024-03-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    Wave climate is shifting over the last decades along the Atlantic coasts of Europe ultimately driven by large-scale patterns of atmospheric variability forced by anthropogenic global warming. Changes in wave height and ...
  • What-if nature-based storm buffers on mitigating coastal erosion 

    Chen, Wei; Staneva, Joanna; Jacob, Benjamin; Sánchez Artús, Xavier; Wurpts, Andreas (Elsevier, 2024-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Creating ecosystem buffers in intertidal zones, such as seagrass meadows, has gained increasing attention as a nature-based solution for mitigating storm-driven coastal erosion. This study presents what-if scenarios using ...
  • Influence of seagrass meadow length on beach morphodynamics: an experimental study 

    Astudillo Gutiérrez, Carlos Salvador; Gracia García, Vicente; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (Elsevier, 2024-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    A novel flume experiment was conducted to compare the sheltering effect of surrogate seagrass meadows of two different lengths against a bare beach (benchmark). The analyses focused on assessing the impact of meadow ...
  • Numerical simulation of a flexible net in currents with the smoothed particle hydrodynamics method 

    González Ávalos, Raúl Alexis; Martinez Estevez, Ivan; Domínguez Alonso, José Manuel; Altomare, Corrado; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Cabrera Crespo, Alejandro Jacobo (Elsevier, 2024-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    The aim of this study is to evaluate the applicability and suitability of the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method in modelling a flexible flat net in currents. SPH is a meshless Lagrangian method that discretises ...
  • Transport and accumulation of floating marine litter in the Black Sea: insights from numerical modeling 

    Castro Rosero, Leidy Maricela; Hernandez, Ivan; Alsina Torrent, José María; Espino Infantes, Manuel (Frontiers Media, 2023-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    Floating marine litter (FML) is a global problem with significant risks to marine life and human health. In semi-enclosed basins like the Black Sea, slow water replenishment and strong input from European rivers create ...
  • Impact costs due to climate change along the coasts of Catalonia 

    Lomelí Quintero, Víctor Manuel; Calderón Vega, Felícitas; Mösso Aranda, César; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; García Soto, Adrián-David (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2023-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Climate change is an increasingly critical issue impacting coasts and coast structures, leading to erosion, flooding, sea level rise, etc. These significantly impact not only the environment and society, but also the ...
  • Towards automated long-term acoustic monitoring of endangered river dolphins: a case study in the Brazilian Amazon floodplains 

    Erbs, Florence Amandine; Gaona, Marina; Van der Schaar, Mike Connor Roger Malcolm; Zaugg, Serge Alain; Ramalho, Emiliano; Houser, Dorian; André, Michel (Springer Nature, 2023-07-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    Using passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) and convolutional neural networks (CNN), we monitored the movements of the two endangered Amazon River dolphin species, the boto (Inia geoffrensis) and the tucuxi (Sotalia fluviatilis) ...
  • Present and future flooding and erosion along the NW Spanish Mediterranean Coast 

    Sánchez Artús, Xavier; Gracia García, Vicente; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Pinyol Guamis, Jordi; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (Frontiers Media, 2023-07)
