Las aguas urbanas en Costa Rica
Urban Waters in Costa Rica
Se presenta una síntesis de los principales temas relacionados con las aguas urbanas como lo son el abastecimiento, el saneamiento, la salud, las dimensiones físicas y humanas, las inundaciones y la variabilidad y cambio ...
Some physical and socio-economic aspects of climate change in Central America
(Progress in Physical Geography: pp. 1-21, 2012-06)
The relative magnitude of precipitation and temperature changes obtained from 21st-century climate change projections from general circulation models (GCMs) is compared to the changes in a selection of socioeconomic ...
Global Model selection for evaluation of Climate Change projections in the Eastern Tropical Pacific Seascape
(Revista Biología Tropical 60 (3): 67-81, 2012-11)
Two methods for selecting a subset of simulations and/or general circulation models (GCMs) from a set of 30 available simulations are compared: 1) Selecting the models based on their performance on reproducing 20th century ...
Tendencias hacia condiciones hidrológicas más secas en Centroamérica (1982- 2005)
Se presenta un resumen de los resultados de proyecciones hidrológicas de 30 modelos de circulación general (MCG) a final de siglo y se analizan si varios parámetros hidrometeorológicos presentan tendencias (1982-2005) ...
Hydrological climate change projections for Central America
(Journal of Hydrology 495: 94–112, 2013-05-04)
Runoff climate change projections for the 21st century were calculated from a suite of 30 General Circulation Model (GCM) simulations for the A1B emission scenario in a 0.5 0.5 grid over Central America. The GCM data ...
Understanding uncertainties in future Colorado River streamflow
(Bulletin of the American Meterorological Society 95(1): 58-81, 2014-01)
The Colorado River is the primary water source for more than 30 million people in the United States and Mexico. Recent studies that project streamflow changes in the Colorado River all project annual declines, but the ...
Observed (1970-1999) climate variability in Central America using a high-resolution meteorological dataset with potential for climate change studies
Average temperature (Tavg) data from stations and station-based gridded datasets at 50 km resolution were used to provide a high-resolution (5 km grid) dataset for Central America from 1970 to 1999. The procedure used ...
Observed (1970–1999) climate variability in Central America using a high-resolution meteorological dataset with implication to climate change studies
High spatial resolution of precipitation (P) and average air temperature (Tavg) datasets are ideal for determining the spatial patterns associated with large-scale atmospheric and oceanic indexes, and climate change and ...
Humedales del Parque Nacional Chirripó, Costa Rica: características, relaciones geomorfológicas y escenarios de cambio climático
Wetlands of the Chirripó National Park, Costa Rica: characteristics, geomorphological relationships and climate change scenarios.
The geomorphological, climatological and hydrological characteristics of the high Andean wetlands of the Chirripó National Park (PNCh) are analyzed. The PNCh is located in south-central Costa Rica, Central America. This ...
Can climate variability information constrain a hydrological model for an ungauged Costa Rican catchment?
Long‐term hydrological data are key to understanding catchment behaviour and for decision making within water management and planning. Given the lack of observed data in many regions worldwide, such as Central America, ...
