  • 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 ...

    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 ...
  • The potential of video imagery from worldwide cabled observatory networks to provide information supporting fish-stock and biodiversity assessment 

    Aguzzi, Jacopo; Chatzievangelou, Damianos; Company Vidal, José Luis; Thomsen, L.; Bonofiglio, Federico; Juanes, Francis; Rountree, Rodney A.; Berry, Alan; Chumbinho, Rogério; Lordan, Colm; Doyle, Jennifer; Río Fernandez, Joaquín del; Navarro, Joan; De Leo, Fabio C.; Bahamón Rivera, Nixon; García del Arco, José Antonio; Danovaro, Roberto; Francescangeli, Marco; López-Vázquez, Vanesa; Gaughan, P. (2020-11-12)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Seafloor multiparametric fibre-optic-cabled video observatories are emerging tools for standardized monitoring programmes, dedicated to the production of real-time fishery-independent stock assessment data. Here, we propose ...
  • Correlation of concurrent extreme metocean hazards considering seasonality 

    Calderón Vega, Felícitas; García Soto, Adrián-David; Mösso Aranda, César (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2020-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Simultaneous occurrence of metocean variables can present a multihazard to maritime systems. However, simplified design approaches to assess simultaneous significant wave heights and wind velocities are lacking, especially ...
  • Bioremediation of aquaculture wastewater with the microalgae Tetraselmis suecica: Semi-continuous experiments, simulation and photo-respirometric tests 

    Andreotti, Valeria; Solimeno, Alessandro; Rossi, Simone; Ficara, Elena; Marazzi, Francesca; Mezzanotte, Valeria; García Serrano, Joan (Elsevier, 2020-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Tetraselmis suecica was cultivated in a semi-continuously operated tubular photobioreactor fed on aquaculture wastewater (AW) testing two hydraulic retention times (HRT): 10 and 7 days (RUN_1 and RUN_2, respectively). The ...
  • Assessing nature based solutions for managing coastal bays 

    Fernández-Pedrera Balsells, Marta; Mestres Ridge, Marc; Fernández, Margarita; Cerralbo, Pablo; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2020-05-26)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This work investigates the hydrodynamic response of two small and shallow bays located in the Ebro Delta, in order to solve the problems affecting mussel farms, such as the high temperatures reached in the summer period ...
  • Morphological evidence for the sensitivity of the ear canal of odontocetes as shown by immunohistochemistry and transmission electron microscopy 

    Vreese, Steffen de; André, Michel; Cozzi, Bruno; Centelleghe, Cinzia; Van der Schaar, Mike Connor Roger Malcolm; Mazzariol, Sandro (Nature, 2020-03-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    The function of the external ear canal in cetaceans is still under debate and its morphology is largely unknown. Immunohistochemical (IHC) analyses using antibodies specific for nervous tissue (anti-S100, anti-NSE, anti-NF, ...
  • Artificial upwelling using offshore wind energy for mariculture applications 

    Viúdez, Álvaro; Fernández-Pedrera Balsells, Marta; Rodríguez-Marroyo, Rocío (2016-09-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    Offshore wind is proposed as an energy source to upwell nutrient-rich deep water to the ocean photic layers. A spar-buoy wind turbine with a rigid tube about 300 m long is proposed as a pipe to drive deep water up to the ...
