    Integrated risk assessment approaches to support coastal managers' decisions when designing plans are increasingly becoming an urgent need. To enable efficient coastal management, possible present and future scenarios must ...
  • Challenges of the recreational use of Amazon beaches 

    Cajueiro Carneiro Pereira, Luci; de Sousa-Felix, Rosigleyse Corrêa; da Costa, Rauquírio Marinho; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2018-11)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The Amazon coast is characterized by a heterogeneous landscape, ranging from zones of intense urban development to sparsely-populated areas with little or no infrastructure or public services (Szlafstein, 2012). The most ...
  • The influence of wave groups and wave-swash interactions on sediment transport and bed evolution in the swash zone 

    Alsina Torrent, José María; Van der Zanden, Joep; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Ribberink, Jan (2018-10-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Large scale laboratory measurements of sediment dynamics in the swash zone are presented. Two bichromatic wave group conditions were generated, having the same energy content but different wave group period (Tg = 15.0 s ...
  • Stern twin-propeller effects on harbor infrastructures. Experimental analysis 

    Mujal Colilles, Anna; Castells Sanabra, Marcel·la; Llull Marroig, Antoni Ignaci; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Martínez de Osés, Francesc Xavier (2018-11-02)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The growth of marine traffic in harbors, and the subsequent increase in vessel and propulsion system sizes, produces three linked problems at the harbor basin area: (i) higher erosion rates damaging docking structures; ...
  • Wave modelling in coastal and inner seas 

    Cavaleri, Luigi; Abdalla, Saleh; Benetazzo, Alvise; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2018-10)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    In the long term development of the research on wind waves and their modelling, in particular of the inner and coastal seas, the present situation is framed with a short look at the past, a critical analysis of the present ...
  • Modelling assessment of the tidal stream resource in the Ria of Ferrol (NW Spain) using a year-long simulation 

    Mestres Ridge, Marc; Cerralbo Peñarroya, Pablo; Grifoll Colls, Manel; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Espino Infantes, Manuel (Elsevier, 2019-02)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The availability of tidal stream energy in the Ría of Ferrol (NW Spain) has been assessed using a long term hydrodynamic simulation (351 days). A priori, a strait in the central part of the estuary seems a promising site ...
  • The ability of societies to adapt to twenty-first-century sea-level rise 

    Hinkel, Jochen; Aerts, Jereoen C. J. H.; Brown, Sally; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2018-06)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Against the background of potentially substantial sea-level rise, one important question is to what extent are coastal societies able to adapt? This question is often answered in the negative by referring to sinking islands ...
  • A ferrofluid-based sensor to measure bottom shear stresses under currents and waves 

    Musumerci, Rosaria; Marletta, Vincenzo; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Foti, Enrico (2018-02)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The measurement of the near-bottom flow characteristics is crucial to correctly understand coastal processes. To overcome some of the limits of present state-of-the-art measuring instruments, we propose a novel approach ...
  • A new era of coastal services 

    Carniel, Sandro; Bonaldo, Davide; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2018-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The increasing quality and quantity of information provided by Copernicus (the European Union Programme funneling Earth Observation and in situ data into a broad set of information services) offer the possibility to analyse ...
  • A Mediterranean coastal database for assessing the impacts of sea-level rise and associated hazards 

    Wolff, Claudia; Vafeidis, Athanasios T.; Muis, Sanne; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (Nature, 2018-03)
    Article
    Accés obert
    We have developed a new coastal database for the Mediterranean basin that is intended for coastal impact and adaptation assessment to sea-level rise and associated hazards on a regional scale. The data structure of the ...
  • Influence of a drought event on hydrological characteristics of a small estuary on the Amazon mangrove coast 

    Pereira, Luci Cajueiro Carneiro; Costa, Adila K. R.; da Costa, Rauquírio Marinho; Magalhaes, Andre; Flores-Montes, Manuel J.; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2018-05)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The effects of atypical climatic conditions, such as those of a drought event, are remarkably accentuated in minor estuaries filled with sediments and with reduced or sporadic freshwater input, where the salinity intrusion ...
  • An analysis of nearshore profile and bar development under large scale erosive and accretive waves 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván (2018-04)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Typical morphodynamic laboratory tests have been carried out at small scales and without sufficient coverage or resolution. These limitations, applying particularly to accretive tests, have obstructed reliable observations ...
