Abstract
Coastal lagoons are highly productive areas (for instance regarding aquaculture) and subject to multiple pressures. The challenge for oceanographic predictions is compounded by significant land discharges, in some cases coexisting with a micro-tidal range. The resulting problem can be illustrated by the Alfacs bay in the Ebro Delta of the Spanish Mediterranean coast where there is, for most of the year, a persistent structure with a salt wedge layer and fresh water from land discharges floating ...
