Internal Cycle of Seminars at IMEDEA (CISI) consist on a cycle of seminar presentations given mainly by doctoral students, masters and junior postdocs, although it is not closed to other staff, such as visitors and staff, that take place every Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m in the seminar room os IMEDEA.

This represents a great opportunity to learn more about the research carried out at the Institute and to bring those with less experience , the chance of increasing their presentation and public speaking skills. Afterwards, there will be soft drinks and beers for all attendees 😉 We strongly encourage you to participate. Join us!

Internal Cycle of Seminars IMEDEA - Amaya Álvarez- «Deep Learning inside the fish market»
  Abstract In this presentation, we will explore the various tasks undertaken by the Fish Ecology Lab at the Palma Fish Market since 2018. Our focus lies in automating the processes employed for extracting fish length measurements. The dynamic distribution of fish lengths plays a crucial role, not only in making informed short-term operational decisions within a fishery co-management framework but also in providing input for traditional fishery models that illuminate mid- and long-term trends in exploited stocks. Traditionally, the estimation of fish length in most fisheries has been a manual endeavor, resulting in precise measurements at the individual fish level. However, due to the high cost and inefficiency associated with supervised sampling, the sample size tends to be limited. Consequently, the precision of population-level estimates often falls short, and biases may arise, especially when adequately stratified sampling programs are economically unfeasible. Conversely, the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence in fisheries science presents a promising avenue for large-scale, unbiased sampling of fish catches. The Fish Ecology Lab has been working with the daily images recived from the auction of the fish market to extract information on various commercial species such as hake, dolphinfish, and red shrimp. This presentation will specifically focus into the deep learning techniques employed for each of these cases.

Internal Cycle of Seminars IMEDEA - Alexandre Paris- «Numerical modeling of landslide tsunamis & Long term modeling of sandy beaches morphodynamical evolution»



As a new postdoc here, I will present my thesis work on landslide tsunamis and my previous postdoc on beaches morphodynamics.

During my PhD I compared a depth-averaged 2D model with a 3D model, OpenFOAM. Here I will mainly present two applications of the 2D model, on two events, the 2017 Karrat Fjord, Greenland, and 2018 Krakatau, Indonesia tsunamis.

The second part of the seminar will be dedicated to two methods I developed to model the long term (two months to two years) morphodynamical evolution of a sandy beach. Both methods use a one-line equilibrium model, ShoreFor, and a 2D depth-averaged model, XBeach, and are tested on the beach of Duck, North Carolina, USA.'
