Resum
A study of three breaching episodes of the Trabucador barrier beach (Spanish Mediterranean coast) is presented. The analysis is done from a modeling perspective using XBEACH and SWAN. The morphodynamic model (XBEACH) has been validated with the available information. The so obtained Brier Skill Score index has been 0.44 which can be considered as acceptable. Results indicate that in all cases breaching was taking place after 8 hours of wave action (storm) or less. Besides, four main parameters c...
