    Marino, Massimiliano; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Musumeci, Rosaria Ester (Elsevier, 2022-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    An assessment of formulas to recover wave surface elevation from pressure measurements was carried out in the present study. The investigation focused on the formulas’ performance in the shoaling region, i.e. where the ...
  • Enhanced dual filter for floating wind lidar motion correction: The impact of wind and initial scan phase models 

    Salcedo Bosch, Andreu; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Sospedra Iglesias, Joaquim (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2022-09-21)
    Article
    Open Access
    An enhanced filter for floating Doppler wind lidar motion correction is presented. The filter relies on an unscented Kalman filter prototype for floating-lidar motion correction without access to the internal line-of-sight ...
  • Barriers and enablers for upscaling coastal restoration 

    Sánchez Arcilla, Agustín; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Le Roux, Xavier; Hinkel, Jochen; Schuerch, Mark; Nicholls, Robert J.; Otero, Maria del Mar; Staneva, Joanna; de Vries, Mindert; Pernice, Umberto; Briere, Christophe; Caiola, Nuno; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Ibañez, Carles; Torresan, Silvia (Elsevier, 2022-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Coastal restoration is often distrusted and, at best, implemented at small scales, which hampers its potential for coastal adaptation. Present technical, economic and management barriers stem from sectoral and poorly ...
  • Relationship between eroded volume and main scour hole dimensions near quay walls caused by internal counter-rotating twin-propellers 

    Curulli, Giuseppe; Llull Marroig, Antoni Ignaci; Penna, Nadia; Mujal Colilles, Anna; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sánchez Arcilla, Agustín; Gaudio, Roberto (2022-07-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    The present study aims at computing and analysing the eroded sediment volumes induced by twin-propeller jets near a vertical quay wall from the main geometric characteristics of the scour hole. Two different scouring ...
  • Wave overtopping at near-vertical seawalls: influence of foreshore evolution during storms 

    Briganti, Riccardo; Musumeci, Rosaria Ester; Van der Meer, Jentsje; Romano, Alessandro; Stancanelli, Laura Maria; Kudella, Matthias; Akbar, Rizki; Mukhdiar, Ryard; Altomare, Corrado; Suzuki, Tomohiro; De Girolamo, Paolo; Besio, Giovanni; Dodd, Nicholas; Zhu, Fangfang; Schimmels, Stefan (2022-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents the results of an investigation on how wave overtopping at a near-vertical seawall at the back of a sandy foreshore is influenced by sequences of erosive storms. The experiments were carried out in the ...
  • Near-bed sediment transport during offshore bar migration in large-scale experiments 

    Grossmann, Florian; Hurther, David; Van der Zanden, Joep; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Alsina Torrent, José María (2022-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    This study presents novel insights into hydrodynamics and sediment fluxes in large-scale laboratory experiments with bichromatic wave groups on a relatively steep initial beach slope (1:15). An Acoustic Concentration and ...
  • Effects of extreme climatic events on the hydrological parameters of the estuarine waters of the Amazon coast 

    Rodriguez da Costa, Adila Kelly; Cajueiro Carneiro Pereira, Luci; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Gomes de Oliveira, Antonio Rafael; Flores Montes, Manuel de Jesus; da Costa, Rauquírio Marinho (2022-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Oscillations in rainfall levels are one of the principal factors that determine seasonal shifts in physicochemical and hydrobiological variables, and exceptional climate events can have an enormous effect on the characteristics ...
  • Beach profile changes induced by surrogate Posidonia Oceanica: laboratory experiments 

    Astudillo Gutiérrez, Carlos Salvador; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2022-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    New flume experiments with surrogate seagrass meadows are presented. The experiments included the creation of a full-scale and realistic Posidonia Oceanica model to evaluate the effect over wave attenuation, sediment ...
  • Water exchanges in Mediterranean microtidal harbours 

    Samper Garcia, Yaiza Julia; Liste Muñoz, María; Mestres Ridge, Marc; Espino Infantes, Manuel; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Sospedra Iglesias, Joaquim; González Marco, Daniel; Ruiz Gil de la Serna, María Isabel; Álvarez Fanjul, Enrique (2022-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Mediterranean ports feature complex layouts and exert important environmental pressures in squeezed coastal zones. They experience mild meteo-oceanographic conditions during part of the year, leading to water velocities ...
  • Simulation of 3D overtopping flow–object–structure interaction with a calibration-based wave generation method with DualSPHysics and SWASH
