The role of the meridional sea surface temperature gradient in controlling the Caribbean low-level jet
The Caribbean low‐level jet (CLLJ) is an important modulator of regional climate, especially precipitation, in the Caribbean and Central America. Previous work has inferred, due to their semiannual cycle, an association ...
A review of the main drivers and variability of Central America’s Climate and seasonal forecast systems
Una revisión de los principales controladores y de la variabilidad del clima en América Central y sistemas de pronóstico estacional
América Central es una región susceptible a desastres naturales y cambio climático. En el presente estudio, se revisaron los principales forzantes atmosféricos y oceánicos, así como los moduladores del clima que afectan ...
Interannual variability of the midsummer drought in Central America and the connection with sea surface temperatures
The midsummer drought (MSD) in Central America is characterised in order to create annual indexes representing the timing of its phases (start, minimum and end), and other features relevant for MSD forecasting such as the ...
The early rainy season in Central America: the role of thetropical North Atlantic SSTs
We explored the relationship between the precipitation anomalies during May to June as the first peak of the rainy season in the Pacific slope of Central America, and sea surface temperature (SST) fluctuations in the ...
