    Coastal tourism usually is of enormous interest to local coastal communities due to its potential for the creation of jobs and the generation of income. Within this context, beaches are the main resource since they comprise ...
  • Wave boundary layer hydrodynamics and sheet flow properties under large-scale plunging-type breaking waves 

    Fromant, Guillaume; Hurther, David; Van der Zanden, Joep; Van Der A, Dominic; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; O'Donoghue, Tom; Ribberink, Jan (Wiley, 2019-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Wave boundary layer (WBL) dynamics are measured with an Acoustic Concentration and Velocity Profiler (ACVP) across the sheet flow-dominated wave-breaking region of regular large-scale waves breaking as a plunger over a ...
  • Spatial and temporal distributions of turbulence under bichromatic breaking waves 

    Van der Zanden, Joep; Van Der A, Dominic; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Larsen, Bjarke Eltard; Fromant, Guillaume; Petrotta, Carmelo; Scandura, Pietro; Li, Ming (2019-04)

    The present study aims to extend insights of surf zone turbulence dynamics to wave groups. In a large-scale wave flume, bichromatic wave groups were produced with 31.5 s group period, 4.2 s mean wave period, and a 0.58 m ...
  • 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

    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) ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
