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.

We strongly believe that the Internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and we are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. To accomplish this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide range of disabilities. Adhering to those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: people who are blind, people with motor disabilities, visually impaired, cognitively disabled, and more. This website uses various technologies that are intended to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We use an accessibility interface that allows people with specific disabilities to adjust the user interface (user interface) of the website and design it according to their personal needs. In addition, the website uses an application based on artificial intelligence that runs in the background and constantly optimizes its accessibility level. This application corrects the HTML of the website, adapts its functionality and behavior for screen readers used by blind users and for keyboard functions used by people with motor disabilities. If you have detected a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we would be happy to hear from you. You can contact the operators of the website through the following email firstname.lastname@example.org
Visually impaired mode: this mode adjusts the website for the comfort of users with visual impairments such as vision impairment, tunnel vision, cataracts, glaucoma and others. Cognitive Impairment Mode: this mode provides different assistance options to help users with cognitive disabilities such as dyslexia, autism, AVC and others to focus on the essential elements of the website more easily. Screen Reader Compatibility: this mode configures the website to be compatible with screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack. A screen reader is software for blind users that is installed on a computer and smartphone, and websites must be compatible with it. Keyboard Navigation Profile (with engine issues): This profile allows people with engine issues to operate the website using Tab, Shift+Tab and Enter keys. Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific items.
Font Settings: users can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust spacing, alignment, line height, and more. Color settings: users can select various color contrast profiles, such as light, dark, inverted, and monochrome. Additionally, users can swap title, text, and background color schemes, with more than 7 different color options. Content highlighting: users can choose to emphasize important elements like links and titles. They can also choose to highlight only items that are in focus or hover. Cognitive disorders: We use a search engine that is linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to decipher the meaning of phrases, initials, slang, and others. Additional features: We offer users the option to change the color and size of the cursor, use a print mode, enable a virtual keyboard, and many other features.
Our goal is to support the widest possible variety of browsers and assistive technologies, so our users can choose the tools that work best for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all the major systems that comprise more than 95% of the user market share, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS and NVDA (file readers). screen), both for Windows and for MAC users.
Despite our best efforts to allow anyone to adjust the Website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or lack a suitable technological solution to make them accessible. Even so, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All of this is aimed at reaching the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advances. For help, contact email@example.com
