    Grifoll Colls, Manel; Martínez de Osés, Francesc Xavier (Universidad de Cantabria, 2017-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    New generation of high-resolution meteo-oceanographic predictions provides useful tools for routing of ships in short maritime distances. In this work, the optimal ship routing analysis is investigated in maritime routes ...
  • Wind-wave characterization in a wind-jet region: the Ebro delta case 

    Ràfols Bundó, Laura; Pallarès López, Elena; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Bravo, Manel; Sairouni, Abdel (2017-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    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 ...
  • 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
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    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 ...
  • Evaluating air emission inventories and indicators from cruise vessels at ports 

    Melo Rodríguez, Germán de; Martín Alcalde, Enrique; Murcia González, Juan Carlos; Saurí Marchán, Sergi (2017-02-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper provides an estimation of air emissions (CO2, NOX, SOX and PM) released by cruise vessels at the port level. The methodology is based on the Bfull bottom-up^ approach and starts by evaluating the fuel consumed ...
  • Stakeholder’s profitability of carrier-led consolidation strategies in urban goods distribution 

    Estrada Romeu, Miguel Ángel; Roca Riu, Mireia (2017-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents the necessary conditions to ensure a minimal profitability of carrier-led consolidation strategies in urban distribution. These conditions are shown by compact formulas obtained by continuous approximations ...
  • Analysis of current intensification in the NorthWest Mediterranean Shelf 

    Mestres Ridge, Marc; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2016-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Flow intensification episodes lasting more than 12 h are observed occasionally at different locations along the Northwestern Mediterranean coast. In the last years, these pulses have hindered ship operations outside the ...
  • Estimate of social and environmental costs for the urban distribution of goods: practical case for the city of Barcelona 

    Fernández Barceló, Iván; Campos Cacheda, Jose Magin (2012-12-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    The objective of the formulation is to allow to evaluate easily the costs of the urban distribution of goods by means of wheeled vehicles, and to formalize a methodological outline for the mentioned evaluation, which allows ...
