  • 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 ...
  • Experimental set-up and calibration errors for mapping wave-breaking pressures on marine structures 

    Marzeddu, Andrea; Stagonas, Dimitris; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2018-03)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Capturing the detailed spatial variation of pressures induced by breaking waves on physical model structures has become possible using a high resolution mapping system. It can provide data with 4 measuring points/cm2, ...
  • Scouring processes in harbour basins during the docking and undocking manoeuvring: laboratory experiments 

    Mujal Colilles, Anna; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (Universidad de Cantabria, 2017-07-25)

  • Cruise passenger impacts on mobility within a port area: case of the Port of Barcelona 

    Ros Chaos, Sergio; Pino Roca, D; Saurí Marchán, Sergi; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (2018-03)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Cruise tourism has grown rapidly worldwide over the past 30 years. This increase in cruise passengers has brought a set of economic, socio-cultural, and environmental impacts. In a port context, it is reflected in mobility ...
  • Storm-induced risk assessment: evaluation of two tools at the regional and hotspot scale 

    Ferreira, O.; Viavattene, Christophe; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2018-04)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Coastal zones are under increasing risk as coastal hazards increase due to climate change and the consequences of these also increase due to on-going economic development. To effectively deal with this increased risk ...
  • Selecting coastal hotspots to storm impacts at the regional scale: a Coastal Risk Assessment Framework 

    Viavattene, Christophe; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Priest, S.; Owen, D.; McCall, R.; Ferreira, Óscar Manuel Fernandes Cerveira (2018-04)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Managing coastal risk at the regional scale requires a prioritization of resources along the shoreline. A transparent and rigorous risk assessment should inform managers and stakeholders in their choices. This requires ...
  • The Tordera Delta, a hotspot to storm impacts in the coast northwards of Barcelona (NW Mediterranean) 

    Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Sanuy Vázquez, Marc; Ballesteros Martínez, Caridad; Valdemoro Garcia, Herminia (2018-04)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The Catalan coast, as most of the developed Mediterranean coastal zone, can be characterized as a high-risk area to the impact of storms due to the large concentration of values together with the dominance of eroding ...
  • Near-bed turbulent kinetic energy budget under a large-scale plunging breaking wave over a fixed bar 

    Van der Zanden, Joep; Van Der A, Dominic; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Hurther, David; McLelland, Stuart J.; Ribberink, Jan; O'Donoghue, Tom (Wiley, 2018-01-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Hydrodynamics under regular plunging breaking waves over a fixed breaker bar were studied in a large-scale wave flume. A previous paper reported on the outer flow hydrodynamics; the present paper focuses on the turbulence ...
