  • Assessing the impact of sea level rise on port operability using LiDAR-derived digital elevation models 

    Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Gómez, Marta; Pedrol, Mònica; Sampé, Sara; García León, Manuel; Gironella Cobos, Xavier (2019-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    One of the main consequences of climate change is the sea level rise (SLR), which impacts coastal areas affecting many infrastructures, particularly seaports, whose operations may be jeopardized. In this paper, a methodological ...
  • Long wave generation induced by differences in the wave-group structure 

    Padilla, Enrique; Alsina Torrent, José María (Wiley, 2018-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    The propagation of bichromatic wave groups with differences in the wave-group structure and its influence in long-wave generation are investigated. The wave-group structure is controlled by the number of wave groups (Ng) ...
  • Operational oceanography at the service of the ports 

    Álvarez Fanjul, Enrique; García Sotillo, Marcos; Pérez Gómez, Begoña; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Mestres Ridge, Marc; Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2018)

    The implementation of operational oceanography in the past 15 years has provided many societal benefits and has led to many countries adopting a formal roadmap for providing ocean forecasts. Continuing the tradition of two ...
  • Comparison of Coastal Vulnerability Index applications for Barcelona Province 

    Koroglu, Aysun; Ranasinghe, Roshanka; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Dastgheib, Ali (2019-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    The Coastal Vulnerability Index (CVI) is one of the simplest and commonly used methods to assess coastal vulnerability to sea-level rise (SLR) driven erosion and/or inundation. In this way, it is a common tool contributing ...
  • Sensitivity of storm-induced hazards in a highly curvilinear coastline to changing storm directions: the Tordera delta case (NW Mediterranean) 

    Sanuy Vázquez, Marc; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2019-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    Extreme coastal storms, especially when incident in areas with densely urbanized coastlines, are one of the most damaging forms of natural disasters. The main hazards originating from coastal storms are inundation and ...
  • Characterization of bottom sediment resuspension events observed in a micro-tidal bay 

    Grifoll Colls, Manel; Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Guillén Aranda, Jorge; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Boye Hansen, Lars; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2019-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this study we investigate the variability in near-bottom turbidity in Alfacs Bay (in the northwestern Mediterranean Sea). The bay is characterized by a micro-tidal environment and seiching activity that may lead to flow ...
  • Ship manoeuvre patterns to prevent propeller scouring effects 

    Castells Sanabra, Marcel·la; Mujal Colilles, Anna; Llull Marroig, Antoni Ignaci; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Martínez de Osés, Francesc Xavier; Martín Mallofré, Agustí; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure (PIANC), 2018)

  • First considerations on environmental friendly solutions to protect the southern Romanian coast 

    Monclús, Albert; Dinu, Irina; García León, Manuel; Lin Ye, Jue; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Stanica, Adrian (GeoEcoMar, 2018-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    The aim of this work is to assess the effect of a nature-based solution for reducing wave heights on the Southern Romanian coast. Apart from investigating the presence of seagrass from the environmental point of view, there ...
  • Use of a hydrodynamic model for the management of water renovation in a coastal system 

    Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Fernández Pedrera, Marta; Mestres Ridge, Marc; Fernández, Margarita; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2019-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this contribution we investigate the hydrodynamic response in Alfacs Bay (Ebro Delta, NW Mediterranean Sea) to different anthropogenic modifications in freshwater flows and inner bay–open sea connections. The fresh water ...
  • Rhythmic morphology in a microtidal low-energy beach 

    Mujal Colilles, Anna; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Falqués Serra, Albert (2019-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Observations of rythmic features along the inner side of the Trabucador barrier beach are coupled to two numerical models to unravel the mechanisms of its formation. The Trabucador is a long (6 Km) narrow (125 m) barrier ...
  • The land–sea coastal border: a quantitative definition by considering the wind and wave conditions in a wave-dominated, micro-tidal environment 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Lin Ye, Jue; García León, Manuel; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Pallarès López, Elena (2019-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    A quantitative definition for the land–sea (coastal) transitional area is proposed here for wave-driven areas, based on the variability and isotropy of met-ocean processes. Wind velocity and significant wave height fields ...
  • Impact of sea-level rise on the tourist-carrying capacity of Catalan beaches 

    López-Doriga Sandoval, Uxía; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Valdemoro Garcia, Herminia; Nicholls, Robert J. (2019-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Tourism provides about 11% of Catalonia's GDP, with most accommodations placed being associated with the “sun-and-sand” model. Since beaches are the main resource to be exploited, it is important to assess how their future ...
