A MORPHOLOGICAL "MIXED-TYPE" MODEL FOR THE EBRO DELTA COAST

Agustin Sanchez-Archilla, Jose A. Jimenez

Abstract


A conceptual model to explain and simulate the long-term (decadal) Ebro delta coast evolution is presented as well as the approach to be followed to convert this conceptual model into a numerical one able to quantitatively predict the deltaic coast behaviour. Moreover, a first running sub-model which simulates most of the changes suffered by the outer coast is described in details. This sub-model is a long-term scale version of a one-line coastal model in curvilinear coordinates. The developed model has been verified and predictions of coastline evolution under different scenarios are also presented.
