  • Dynamics of the rhythmic morphology on the low-energy Trabucador beach (Ebro delta) 

    Mujal Colilles, Anna; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Falqués Serra, Albert (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Observations of rhythmic morphology along the Trabucador beach are contrasted with two numerical models to unravel the mechanisms of their formation. The Trabucador is a long narrow barrier at the SW side of the Ebro ...
  • A simheuristic for the unmanned aerial vehicle surveillance-routing problem with stochastic travel times and reliability considerations 

    Panadero, Javier; Juan Pérez, Ángel Alejandro; Serrat Piè, Carles; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Freixes, Alfons (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) surveillance-routing problem, a limited fleet of UAVs with driving-range limitations have to visit a series of target zones in order to complete a monitoring operation. This operation ...
