  • Flood depth-damage curves for Spanish urban areas 

    Martínez Gomariz, Eduardo; Forero Ortiz, Edwar Andres; Guerrero Hidalga, María; Castan, Salvador; Gómez Valentín, Manuel (2020-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Depth‒damage curves, also known as vulnerability curves, are an essential element of many flood damage models. A relevant characteristic of these curves is their applicability limitations in space and time. The reader will ...

    The Ter River drains the south-eastern Pyrenees and flows into the Mediterranean Sea. A lithological constriction affects the normal water flow in the La Plana de Vic area. As a consequence of this disturbance in the flow, ...
  • Thermal response of Sanabria lake to global change (NW Spain) 

    Ramos Fuertes, Anaïs; Vega Ureta, José Carlos; Palau Ibars, Antoni; Armengol Bachero, Joan; Casasola García, Antonio; Rodríguez Palao, Alejandro; Dolz Ripollès, Josep (2020-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Are large water bodies able to act as sensors of global change? As accumulators of water and heat, some of their thermal characteristics might be altered by long term (decadal) hydrometeorological changes and thus may be ...
