Los resultados del proyecto MARES, desarrollado por IHCantabria con el apoyo de la Fundación Biodiversidad, revelan que el aumento del nivel del mar desencadenará cambios en el ecosistema del estuario que tendrán consecuencias sobre los servicios que proporcionan a la sociedad, los cuales son imprescindibles para garantizar nuestro bienestar en el futuro. En el proyecto MARES se han identificado las zonas inundadas como consecuencia del aumento del nivel del mar bajo diferentes escenarios de cambio climático en cuatro estuarios de la Cornisa Cantábrica: Eo (Galicia-Asturias),…
European ERASMUS + project CABARET (Capacity Building in Asia for Resilience EducaTion) is reaching its mid-life time.

IHCantabria has participated in the 36th International Conference on Coastal Engineering (ICCE) 2018 held in Baltimore (USA), from July 30th and August 3rd. ICCE It is recognized as the more relevant international conference in the field by the scientific coastal engineering community. Its goal is to promote academic and technical exchange on coastal related studies covering a wide range of topics in including coastal waves, nearshore currents, coastal structures, sediment transport, coastal morphology, beach nourishment, natural hazards and coastal management. IHCantabria researchers have presented their…
The new Shanghai University Ranking was released yesterday. The ShanghaiRanking is considered the most important, objective and influential in the world and, for the first time, this year it expands the ranking to 54 disciplines. The 2018 ranking is based on bibliometric data from scientific publications between 2012-2016 extracted from InCites (Web of Science). In IHCantabria's core research discipline, Marine/Ocean Engineering, UC ranks 7th in the world, consolidating the levels of excellence achieved in last year's ranking. More importantly, it leads the CNCI indicator worldwide…
The Hydrodynamics and Coastal Infrastructures Group of IHCantabria starts the BRACC project, Breakwater Reliability Assessment by Climate Change. BRACC is a 3-year project supported by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities beginning in 2018 and it is leaded by Javier L. Lara and Gabriel Díaz Hernández. Coastal infrastructures are particularly vulnerable to climate change effects. Ports and harbours, among them, will be especially affected because of their inherent long-life cycles, the high exposure of coastal localizations, the global market dependency, and the pre-established and…
