    Coronaviruses (CoVs) are worldwide distributed RNA-viruses affecting several species, including humans, and causing a broad spectrum of diseases. Historically, they have not been considered a severe threat to public ...
  • First results of phytoplankton spatial dynamics in two NW-Mediterranean bays from chlorophyll-a estimates using sentinel 2: potential implications for aquaculture 

    Soriano González, Jesús; Angelats Company, Eduard; Alcaraz, Carles; Diogene Fadini, Jorge; Fernández Tejedor, Margarita (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-07-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    Shellfish aquaculture has a major socioeconomic impact on coastal areas, thus it is necessary to develop support tools for its management. In this sense, phytoplankton monitoring is crucial, as it is the main source of ...
  • Impact of relative sea-level rise on low-lying coastal areas of Catalonia, NW Mediterranean, Spain 

    López-Doriga Sandoval, Uxía; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2020-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    Low-lying coastal areas are high-risk areas regarding sea-level rise (SLR) due to the combination of low elevation, subsidence and currently low sediment supply, on the one hand, and their high natural and socio-economic ...
  • Financing and implementation of adaptation measures to climate change along the Spanish coast 

    López-Doriga Sandoval, Uxía; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Bisaro, Alexander; Hinkel, Jochen (Elsevier, 2020-04)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Understanding how we are adapting to climate change in coastal areas is an essential issue in the long-term coastal planning. While most of existing studies focus on mapping the current state of adaptation plans, there is ...
  • Revisiting two simulation-based reliability approaches for coastal and structural engineering applications 

    García Soto, Adrián-David; Calderón Vega, Felícitas; Mösso Aranda, César; Valdés Vázquez, Jesús-Gerardo; Hernández Martínez, Alejandro (MDPI, 2020-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    The normality polynomial and multi-linear regression approaches are revisited for estimating the reliability index, its precision, and other reliability-related values for coastal and structural engineering applications. ...
  • Contribution to unravel variability in bowhead whale songs and better understand its ecological significance 

    Erbs, Florence Amandine; Van der Schaar, Mike Connor Roger Malcolm; Weissenberger, Jürgen; Zaugg, Serge Alain; André, Michel (Nature, 2021-01-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    Since the first studies on bowhead whale singing behaviour, song variations have been consistently reported. However, there has been little discussion regarding variability in bowhead whale singing display and its ecological ...
  • Morphology of the external ear canal in toothed whales 

    Vreese, Steffen de; André, Michel; Mazzariol, Sandro (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2019-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Like all mammals, toothed whales possess an outer, middle, and inner ear, all of which present major evolutionary adaptations to underwater hearing. Moreover, the development of acoustical fat bodies, which collect and ...
  • Wind-Driven hydrodynamics in the shallow, micro-tidal estuary at the Fangar Bay (Ebro Delta, NW Mediterranean Sea) 

    Fernández-Pedrera Balsells, Marta; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Espinola Estepa, Manuel; Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2020-10-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    This article investigates water circulation in small-scale (~10 km2), shallow (less than 4 m) and micro-tidal estuaries. The research characterizes the hydrodynamic wind response in these domains using field data from ...
