Laboratory tests make it possible to reproduce on a reduced scale the real behavior of a coastline profile under different conditions of waves and sea level.

In this sense, during the next months, the partners of IHCantabria, within the framework of the LIFE Garachico project, are carrying out a test campaign in their wave channel of the Garachico coastal front at a scale of 1/25, in which they will analyze the behavior of the anti-impact banks proposed in different storm conditions, taking into account the bathymetry of the Garachico coast.
