In this paper, we define the Camorro Fault as one of the several faults in the Torcal de Antequera Massif (MTA). Such massif is located in the central sector of the Torcal Shear Zone (ZCT). The Camorro Fault was previously defined as a dextral strike-slip fault, but field observations let us propose its recent transition to a normal fault regime. T...

Lateral spreading forms when fractured rocks or soil mass slide slowly over a softer underlying material. In this work, we studied two cases, one in the south of Spain and other in the north of Tunisia. Both are rock spreadings and occur along shear or tensile fractures. These mass movements involve in almost all cases rocks and occur along shear o...

La costa SUDOE es un territorio muy vulnerable a los efectos del cambio climático. Se trata de espacios naturales ampliamente modificados, con una fuerte presión urbanística, donde interaccionan procesos terrestres y marinos. El incremento en la frecuencia de eventos meteorológicos extremos induce a peligros geológicos que afectan notablemente a la economía de las regiones costeras y representan una amenaza para sus habitantes. RISKCOAST promueve la innovación para hacer frente a un abanico de amenazas: deslizamientos, subsidencia del terreno por la intensa explotación de los acuíferos durante sequías, erosión y pérdida de suelo tras eventos torrenciales, erosión de costas arenosas y regresión de deltas. Los procesos costeros suelen ser muy complejos y conllevan efectos en cascada difíciles de predecir. RISKCOAST ofrece una visión integral de los riesgos que acechan a la costa, considerando el conjunto de la cuenca hidrológica. RISKCOAST propone un amplio abanico de medidas naturales de rehabilitación, adaptadas a cada riesgo y territorio, cumpliendo la premisa de la protección medioambiental y el mínimo impacto sobre los ecosistemas. La gestión de riesgos implica a un amplio abanico de instituciones que suelen estar descoordinadas. RISKCOAST elabora estrategias para una gestión más coordinada y eficaz del riesgo. RISKCOAST establece y fomenta una red de cooperación transnacional facilitando herramientas innovadoras, metodologías y soluciones para hacer frente común a los riesgos costeros. Los productos generados dan apoyo a las tres fases de la gestión de emergencias: prevención, respuesta y rehabilitación, y serán validados en un par de simulacros participativos. Los nuevos instrumentos se adaptan a los requerimientos de los actores implicados en la gestión del riesgo y se basan en técnicas satelitales y aerotransportadas, modelización numérica avanzada, experimentación en laboratorio y simulaciones matemáticas. RISKCOAST promueve la creación de una plataforma de participación que mejore la comunicación entre la comunidad científica y la sociedad.
