Article
Infragravity waves (IGWs) play a crucial role in nearshore hydrodynamics and are the primary drivers of coastal hazards such as harbor resonance and overtopping over seawalls. Field observations show that during five storm events in Fall 2013, the IGW heights at the landward side were significantly larger than those at the seaward side of an isolat...
Article
Submarine canyons are major conduits for sediment transfer from continental shelf to deep marine environments. Mass failures and faults play a key role in the initiation and evolution of submarine canyons along convergent tectonic margins, in addition to continental sediment supply. Here we analyze high-resolution bathymetry and seismic data from t...

Cartagena is subsiding at a higher rate compared to that of global climate-driven sea level rise. We investigate the relative sea level rise (RSLR) and the influence of vertical land movements in Cartagena through the integration of different datasets, including tide gauge records, GPS geodetic subsidence data, and Interferometric Synthetic Apertur...
Article
Deep-water fold and thrust belts often develop in convergent tectonic margins, creating irregular slope profiles that control the distribution of deep-water gravity deposits. However, in areas with high sediment supply, the erosion and sedimentation can minimize structural relief and smooth the slope. Using multibeam bathymetry with 3D seismic data...

Plain Language Summary Hurricane conditions (winds, waves, and storm surge) are conspicuous at the surface of the ocean. Beneath the surface, however, enhanced water motions strongly influence sand transport and ecological processes at nearby beaches. We present a unique data set of water motions collected over the sand banks near Cape Canaveral, o...
Article
Ocean-estuary exchange variability was studied from 2008 to 2014 at a low latitude coastal plain estuary, Todos os Santos Bay, Brazil, near 13°S. Wind data from Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) were used to complement the results of a high-resolution regional ocean model, ROMS. Volume exchange occurred under two distinct circulation patter...

Projections for the year 2100 predict a global mean sea level 1 m above pre-industrial levels that will likely exacerbate coastal impacts worldwide and especially along vulnerable coastlines of developing countries. Recent studies have predicted a future shoreline retreat linked to the expected acceleration in global sea level rise along the soft-c...
Preprint
It is proposed a long-wave similarity parameter based on the surf-beat similarity and Ursell parameters. By including the Ursell number, the long-wave similarity allows distinguishing between breaking and shoaling generation of long-waves for conditions rendering similar values of surf-beat similarity. The proposed parameter is tested with three ca...
Chapter
The analysis of interactions between human and natural systems is crucial for sound beach management practices. Those interactions can be simulated via agent-based modeling. Nevertheless, more work is needed to identify and understand model capabilities prior to societal implementations. This study presents the application of an agent-based model i...

Inner-shelf and shoreline morphology exert control on the variability of long gravity waves (LGWs, also called infragravity waves typically from 20 to 500 s, or 2 to 50 mHz). In turn, nearshore morphodynamics can be decisively influenced by infragravity motions, which are not well understood over cape-related shoals. In order to study the effects o...

Accurate quantification of coastal hazards remains a crucial issue in light of predicted global sea level rise resulting from climate change. Current predictions, for the year 2100, propose a global mean sea level ~1 m above pre-industrial levels, which will exacerbate coastal impacts, especially along vulnerable coastlines of developing countries....

The Arboletes-Punta Rey littoral is a 5.5-km-long stretch of coast located at the southern Caribbean coast of Colombia, 80 km by car (paved road) to Montería. Geologically, it is located at terrains of the Sinú folded belt, a tectonically active sedimentary wedge evolving under the morphogenetic influence of numerous onshore and offshore manifestat...

Main findings regarding the transformation of waves Waves indeed transformed due to the presence of the shoal. Mean H s is ~1 m in both locations, but landward instrument registered higher waves during peaks (Fig. 2, a-1 and b-1). The conservation of energy implies an increment of height due to shoaling which may explain a greater landward Hs [3]....

El estudio de los impactos de los cambios del nivel del mar es necesario para la gestión litoral, especialmente en costas tectónicamente activas y con ecosistemas estratégicos como las del Caribe sur colombiano. Los escenarios más desfavorables predicen un ascenso del nivel del mar 2 m por encima de su nivel actual para finales este siglo. En este...

The origin, distribution, and fate of the mud deposits located within the inner continental shelf of the state of São Paulo constitute important research topics not explored yet. The objective is, therefore, to identify the evidences of hydrodynamic, geomorphic and structural controls on the mud deposits within the inner continental shelf between Peruíbe and São Sebastião.
