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 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 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 coffee and some biscuits  😉 We strongly encourage you to participate. Join us!

Internal Cycle of Seminars IMEDEA - Francisco Criado- «Mid-Term Beach Monitoring and Shoreline Change Detection: A Case Study of Son Bou Beach, Menorca»
Asbtract Beaches play a crucial role in protecting coastlines from wave energy, acting as the final barrier against coastal erosion. Sandy beaches are particularly susceptible to climate change effects, such as sea level rise and storminess. Understanding the dynamics of these environments amid ongoing changes is essential for designing effective adaptation measures and management strategies. However, the various factors influencing beach morphodynamics, coupled with their dynamic nature, render the integrated monitoring of these areas both resource-intensive and challenging in terms of time, human involvement, and economic resources. Therefore, long-term and high-frequency data-sets, including morphological and wave data, remain scarce in the literature. In this talk, I will present the preliminary results of the analysis of the Son Bou Beach (Menorca, Spain) data-set, with over 13 years (2011-2023) measurements, generated by the Modular Beach Integral Monitoring Systems (MOBIMS) from the Balearic Islands Coastal Observing and Forecasting System (SOCIB). The analysis focuses on characterizing the mid and short-term response of Son Bou beach by means of the shoreline position-change detection. A negative trend in beach width was observed, as well as different responses along the beach. The presence of a coastal lagoon and its opening periods have a significant impact on the beach behavior.

Internal Cycle of Seminars IMEDEA - I.E.S Bendinat - «Comprender y mitigar la acidificación de los océanos» «¿Es posible un turismo sostenible en Mallorca?» «Praderas de Posidonia: ante una nueva extinción?»


You4Blue - Young Generations for Sustainable Blue Growth es un proyecto Erasmus+ dirigido a estudiantes de secundaria en tres islas mediterráneas de la UE, con el objetivo de aumentar la conciencia sobre los desafíos ambientales y proporcionar herramientas para una vida sostenible. El proyecto fomenta una nueva relación con el medio ambiente, desarrolla competencias en áreas STEAM y TIC, y promueve habilidades blandas como la empatía y el pensamiento crítico.

En el marco de este proyecto, el “Sea Curriculum” promueve la participación de estudiantes locales en experiencias prácticas relacionadas con los ecosistemas y las ciencias marinas. Este componente está coordinado por IMEDEA en colaboración con IES Bendinat, con el objetivo de desarrollar e implementar estas actividades de aprendizaje. Una de las actividades consiste en que los estudiantes elijan una temática de investigación y preparen una presentación, la cual será expuesta en IMEDEA.
