Fraile Jurado P., Álvarez Francoso JI., Guisado Pintado E., Sánchez Carnero N., Ojeda Zújar J., et. al. Mapping inundation probability due to increasing sea level rise along El Puerto de Santa María (SW Spain). Natural Hazards. Journal of the International Society for the Prevention and Mitigation of Natural Hazards. 2017; 87-2: 581-598.

Abstract Global sea levels have risen through the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. This rise will almost certainly continue and probably accelerate during the rest of the twenty-first century, albeit there is strong disagreement about the range of future sea level rise due to uncertainties regarding scenarios and emission of greenhouse gasses. Although the impacts of […]

Fernández Núñez M., Burningham H., Ojeda Zújar J. Improving accuracy of LiDAR-derived digital terrain models for saltmarsh management. Journal of Coastal Conservation. 2017; 21-1: 209–222.

Resumen Accurate digital elevation models of saltmarshes are crucial for both conservation and management goals. Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) is increasingly used for topographic surveys due to the ability to acquire high resolution data over spatially-extensive areas. This capability is ideally suited to saltmarsh environments, which are often vast, inaccessible systems where topographic variations […]

Rodríguez Galiano VF., Chica Olmo M., Peluso F., Luque Espinar JA. A methodology for assessing public health risk associated with groundwater nitrate contamination: a case study in an agricultural setting (southern Spain). Environmental Geochemistry and Health. 2016;1-16.

Abstract Groundwater nitrate contamination from agriculture is of paramount environmental interest. A continuous consumption of polluted water as drinking water or for culinary purposes is by no means a minor hazard for people’s health that must be studied. This research presents a new methodology for the spatial analysis of health risk rate from intake of […]

Abstract Recent climate warming has shifted the timing of spring and autumn vegetation phenological events in the temperate and boreal forest ecosystems of Europe. In many areas spring phenological events start earlier and autumn events switch between earlier and later onset. Consequently, the length of growing season in mid and high latitudes of European forest […]

Abstract This research reveals new insights into the weather drivers of interannual variation in land surface phenology (LSP) across the entire European forest, while at the same time establishes a new conceptual framework for predictive modelling of LSP. Specifically, the random-forest (RF) method, a multivariate, spatially non-stationary and non-linear machine learning approach, was introduced for […]

Abstract Nearshore bars play a pivotal role in coastal behaviour, helping to protect and restore beach systems particularly in post-storm conditions. Examination of bar behaviour under various forcing conditions is important to help understand the short- to medium-term evolution of sandy beach systems. This study carried out over a nine-week period examines, the behaviour of […]

Abstract There is broad agreement that marine spatial planning (MSP) should incorporate transboundary considerations, reflecting the cross-border nature of marine and coastal ecosystem dynamics and maritime resources and activities. This is recognised in the European Union’s recent legislation on MSP, and experience in transboundary approaches is developing through official processes and pilot studies. However, differences […]

Abstract Primary information of great importance to various grand challenges such as sustainable agricultural intensification, food insecurity, and climate change impacts, can be obtained indirectly from land cover monitoring. However, in arid-to-semiarid regions, such as Iraq, accurate discrimination of different vegetation types is challenging due to their similar spectral responses. Moreover, Iraq has been subjected […]

Abstract Contamination by nitrates is an important cause of groundwater pollution and represents a potential risk to human health. Management decisions must be made using probability maps that assess the nitrate concentration potential of exceeding regulatory thresholds. However these maps are obtained with only a small number of sparse monitoring locations where the nitrate concentrations […]

Abstract Land surface phenology (LSP), the study of the timing of recurring cycles of changes in the land surface using time-series of satellite sensor-derived vegetation indices, is a valuable tool for monitoring vegetation at global and continental scales. Characterisation of LSP and its spatial variation is required to reveal and predict ongoing changes in Earth […]

Abstract Land surface phenology (LSP) and ground phenology (GP) are both important sources of information for monitoring terrestrial ecosystem responses to climate changes. Each measures different vegetation phenological stages and has different sources of uncertainties, which make comparison in absolute terms challenging, and therefore, there has been limited attempts to evaluate the complementary nature of […]

Abstract Rainfall aggressiveness causes environmental impacts and it is related to several natural hazards. Therefore, this parameter has been chosen as an environmental indicator.

Abstract Elemental concentrations in Phanerozoic sea water are known to fluctuate both in time and space. With regard to carbonates precipitated from marine fluids, elemental concentrations in the carbonate crystal lattice are affected by a complex array of equilibrium and non-equilibrium as well as post-depositional alteration processes. To assess the potential of carbonate elemental chemostratigraphy, […]

Abstract Periodic calculation of coastal bathymetries can show the evolution of geomorphological features in active areas such as mesotidal estuary mouths. Bathymetries in shallow coastal areas have been addressed mainly by two technologies, lidar and optical remote sensing. Lidar provides good accuracy, but is an expensive technique, requiring planned flights for each region and dates […]

Abstract Understanding human-driven land-use changes is a key element for successful coastal management and planning. Land-use change modelling helps to increase our comprehension of the patterns of these changes and the interacting factors affecting them. In previous years, a wide variety of land-use modelling approaches have arisen, however not all of them fit with the […]
