A Tri-dimensional Approach to Climate Sciences
Climate variability on seasonal and inter-annual time scales, as manifested through years of flood versus drought conditions, represent a significant challenge for Central America. A good or bad rainfall season impacts ...
Mapping Environmental and Socioeconomic impacts of hydrometeorological hazards across Central America. Study case: Honduras
Mapeo de los impactos ambientales y socioeconómicos de las amenazas hidrometeorológicas en América Central. Estudio de caso: Honduras
Hydrometeorological hazards have historically affected Central America and significantly impacted the isthmus. However, the spatial distribution of those impacts is heterogeneous and depends on several factors, such as ...
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 ...
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) ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Structure and Detectability of Trends in Hydrological Measures over the Western United States
This study examines the geographic structure of observed trends in key hydrologically relevant variables across the western United States at ⅛° spatial resolution during the period 1950–99. Geographical regions, latitude ...
