Ingeniería de playas (I): conceptos de morfología costera

Agustín Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, José A. Jiménez

Resumen

Se entiende por ingeniería de playas aquella que se realiza en costas sedimentarias, provocando generalmente una respuesta rápida de la zona litoral ante las nuevas condiciones generadas. A fin de que las actuaciones en este ámbito sean lo eficiente que debieran, hay que conocer y, en la medida de lo posible, predecir los cambios que se producen en la zona costera. Por ello, antes de analizar en detalle los diferentes tipos de actuación, lo cual se hará en un próximo artículo, aquí se abordan conceptos básicos de la evolución costera, como son las diferentes escalas evolutivas, tanto temporales como espaciales. Asimismo, se presenta un conjunto de herramientas básicas para poder predecir el comportamiento de la costa, tanto en condiciones naturales, como bajo la influencia de obras.
