    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 ...
  • Growth of Tetraselmis suecica and Dunaliella tertiolecta in aquaculture wastewater: numerical simulation with the BIO_ALGAE model
