MaRINET2 has opened the registrations for the first set of a total of ten courses on offshore renewable energy to be delivered over the next three years.The short, two to five days long, courses for industry and academic researchers in the offshore renewable energy sector are organized and lectured by MaRINET2 project partners, and will focus on three areas: wave, wind and tidal energy.The topics covered include integrated tank testing, hydrodynamics of fixed and floating offshore wind turbine foundations, reliability and risk analysis of ORE…
Ship-waves are first generated by the moving vessel and then propagated towards the port basin, cannel and contours, and finally interacts with the berthing zones, breakwaters, and moored ships. A novel innovative numerical approach for ship-wave generation, propagation and interaction with inner harbor basins (agitation) has been developed. This new tool will help harbour managers to early assess and manage ship speeds, trajectories and possible impacts/ affections related with their downtime analysis. Gabriel Diaz’s presentation at PIANC World Congress is “Numerical ship-wave generation, propagation and…
Today, The Nature Conservancy, Bündnis Entwicklung Hilft and the Institute of Environmental Hydraulics (IHCantabria), provide exact figures on how mangroves act as natural breakwaters and can reduce the risk of disaster for people and property in coastal areas. The authors of the study call on political decision-makers to take effective measures to protect and restore mangrove forests. Michael Beck, Lead Marine Scientist at The Nature Conservancy, says about the findings of “The Global Value of Mangroves for Risk Reduction”: “Without mangrove forests, 18 million more…
Gracias a la política Open Data del Instituto Geológico Nacional, ya está disponible en en su catálogo de descargas los “Mapas de Peligrosidad por Inundación Costera. Periodos de retorno T= 100 años T = 500 años.”. Parte de las bases de datos, la metodología y herramientas para la generación de dichos mapas fueron desarrollados por IHCantabria para Minisitrio de Agricultura, pesca Alimentación y Medio Ambiente ‏ en el marco del proyecto iOLE.

El cambio climático ha sido el protagonista de la edición de este mes de Foro Ser Cantabria. “No se trata de ser catastrofistas”, ha dicho Iñigo Losada, sino de que "las decisiones, tanto públicas como privadas, se tomen con criterios científico-técnicos cualificados, sobre todo en planificación a largo plazo". En este sentido ha defendido la necesidad de que España apruebe este año la ley de transición energética y cambio climático y ha destacado los pasos dados por el Gobierno de Cantabria con un plan específico.…
The Institute of Environmental Hydraulics of the University of Cantabria, IHCantabria, has been chosen as a unique project in Spain as an example of good practice in European cohesion policy on its 30th anniversary. Among other Spanish projects, the institute was presented as a unique project and after a strong selection process we were chosen as an example of the good work and positive impact on citizenship of these cohesion policies. The general director of IHCantabria said at a press conference that the institute exists…
