    This manuscript describes the wind-wave generation, development and fading in a complex area: a wind-jet region. The study region is the offshore Ebro Delta (NW Mediterranean Sea) where strong cross-shelf winds occur due ...
  • Evaluating air emission inventories and indicators from ferry vessels at ports 

    Melo Rodríguez, Germán de; Murcia González, Juan Carlos; Martín Alcalde, Enrique; Saurí Marchán, Sergi (CRC Press/Balkema, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper provides an estimation of exhaust emissions released by passenger ferries at the port-level. The methodology is based on the “full bottom-up” approach and starts by evaluating the fuel con-sumed by marine diesel ...
  • Seasonal sediment dynamics on the Barcelona inner shelf (NW Mediterranean): a small Mediterranean river- and wave-dominated system 

    Lopez, Laura; Guillén, Jorge; Palanques, Albert; Grifoll Colls, Manel (2017-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    The seasonal pattern of sediment dynamics on an inner shelf characterized by the presence of sediment delivered by a small, mountainous river (with a “flash-flood” regime) was investigated. Near-bottom suspended sediment ...
