  • Formulating wave overtopping at vertical and sloping structures with shallow foreshores using deep-water wave characteristics 

    Lashley, Chris H.; Van der Meer, Jentsje; Bricker, Jeremy; Altomare, Corrado; Suzuki, Tomohiro; Hirayama, Katsuya (2021-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    The state-of-the-art formulas for mean wave overtopping (q) assessment typically require wave conditions at the toe of the structure as input. However, for structures built either on land or in very shallow water, obtaining ...

    Article
    Open Access
    In January 2020, the storm Gloria hit the Western Mediterranean Sea causing severe coastal damages, destruction of infrastructures, flooding and several casualties. This extreme event was characterized by strong Eastern ...
  • Twin propeller time-dependent scouring processes: physical experiments 

    Llull Marroig, Antoni Ignaci; Mujal Colilles, Anna; Gironella Cobos, Xavier (2021-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present a new set of experiments in local scour due to confined twin propeller jets aiming to include propeller driving characteristics to the analysis of the scouring action during in-port manoeuvres. The maximum scour ...
  • A Robust Adaptive Unscented Kalman Filter for floating Doppler Wind-LiDAR motion correction 

    Salcedo Bosch, Andreu; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Sospedra Iglesias, Joaquim (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021-10-18)
    Article
    Open Access
    This study presents a new method for correcting the six degrees of freedom motion-induced error in ZephIR 300 floating Doppler Wind-LiDAR-derived data, based on a Robust Adaptive Unscented Kalman Filter. The filter takes ...
  • Simulation of random wave overtopping by a WCSPH model 

    Altomare, Corrado; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Crespo, Alejandro J.C. (2021-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this work the Weakly Compressible SPH-based (WCSPH) model DualSPHysics has been validated and applied to study the random wave overtopping of dike-promenade layout in shallow water conditions. Data from physical model ...
  • Storm Gloria: sea state evolution based on in situ measurements and modeled data and its impact on extreme values 

    Alfonso, Marta de; Lin Ye, Jue; García Valdecasas, José María; Pérez Rubio, Susana; Luna, Yolanda; Santos Muñoz, Daniel; Ruiz Gil de la Serna, María Isabel; Pérez Gómez, Begoña; Álvarez Fanjul, Enrique (Frontiers Media, 2021-03-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    Storm Gloria, generated on January 17th, 2020 in the Eastern North Atlantic, crossed the Iberian Peninsula and impacted the Western Mediterranean during the following days. The event produced relevant damages on the coast ...
  • Coastal adaptation and uncertainties: the need of ethics for a shared coastal future 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Mösso Aranda, César; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; González Marco, Daniel; Gómez Aguar, Jesús Javier (Frontiers Media, 2021-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Coastal hydro-morphodynamics present significant uncertainties, one order of magnitude larger for sediment transport than for the driving hydrodynamics. Met-ocean factors (waves, currents and levels essentially) are normally ...
  • Beachgoer perceptions on health regulations of COVID-19 in two popular beaches on the Brazilian Amazon 

    Cajueiro Carneiro Pereira, Luci; de Sousa-Felix, Rosigleyse Corrêa; Brito Dias, Ana Beatriz; Coelho Pessoa, Rubem Manoel; Ribeiro Padilha da Silva, Brenda; da Costa Baldez, Carlos Alessandro; da Costa, Rauquírio Marinho; Sousa da Silva, Taynara; Ferreira da Silva Assis, Luciane; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio (2021-06)
    Article

    The sandy beaches of the Brazilian Amazon coast have enormous touristic potential and attract thousands of visitors each year, principally in July, at the beginning of the summer vacation period. In 2020, beach going was ...
  • A new morphodynamic instability associated with cross-shore transport in the nearshore 

    Falqués Serra, Albert; Ribas Prats, Francesca; Mujal Colilles, Anna; Puig i Polo, Càrol (2021-07-16)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The existing theory for shore-transverse rhythmic sand bars relies on morphodynamic instabilities involving the wave-driven longshore current and rip currents. Intriguingly, transverse finger bars are common on coasts with ...
  • Global costs of protecting against sea-level rise at 1.5°C to 4.0°C 

    Brown, Sally; Jenkins, Katie; Goodwin, Philip; Lincke, Daniel; Vafeidis, Athanasios T.; Tol, Richard S. J.; Jenkins, Rhosanna; Warren, Rachel; Nicholls, Robert J.; Jevrejeva, Svetlana; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Haigh, Ivan D. (2021-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Sea-levels will rise, even with stringent climate change mitigation. Mitigation will slow the rate of rise. There is limited knowledge on how the costs of coastal protection vary with alternative global warming levels of ...
  • Classifying compound coastal storm and heavy rainfall events in the north-western Spanish Mediterranean 

    Sanuy Vázquez, Marc; Rigo, Tomeu; Jiménez Quintana, José Antonio; Llasat Botija, Maria Carmen (2021-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    The north-west (NW) Mediterranean coastal zone is a populous and well-developed area in which the impact of natural hazards like flash floods and coastal storms can result in frequent and significant damages. Although the ...
  • A methodological framework for selecting an optimal sediment source within a littoral cell

    Article
    Open Access
    One of the most used measures to counteract coastal erosion is beach nourishment. It has advantages with respect to the use of rigid structures that sometimes entail non desired impacts on the surrounding areas. However, ...
