Model integration for assessing future hydroclimate impacts on water resources, agricultural production and environmental quality in the San Joaquin Basin, California
The US National Assessment of the Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change provides compelling arguments for action and adaptive measures to help mitigate water resource, agricultural production and ...
Alternative principal components regression procedures for dendrohydrologic reconstructions
Streamflow reconstruction using tree ring information (dendrohydrology) has traditionally used principal components analysis (PCA) and stepwise regression to form a transfer function. However, PCA has several procedural ...
Climate precursors of multidecadal drought variability in the western United States
Low-frequency (periodicities lower than 20 years) hydrologic variability in the western United States over the past 500 years is studied using available tree-ring reconstructions of Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI), ...
Climate change scenarios and sea level rise estimates for California 2008 Climate Change Scenarios Assessment
For the 2008 California Climate Change Assessment, to further investigate possible future climate changes in California, a set of 12 climate change model simulations was selected and evaluated. From the Intergovernmental ...
Downscaling With Constructed Analogues: Daily Precipitation and Temperature Fields Over The United States
Daily precipitation and average temperature patterns for the contiguous United States were downscaled from a 2.5 x 2.5 degree (coarse) resolution grid to a 1/8 x 1/8 degree (fine) resolution grid using a constructed‐analogues ...
Climate Change, Growth, and California Wildfire
Large wildfire occurrence and burned area are modeled using hydroclimate and landsurface characteristics under a range of future climate and development scenarios. The range of uncertainty for future wildfire regimes is ...
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 ...
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, ...
(Hydro)climatological studies of climate change and variability in Central America
This is the presentation of Hugo Hidalgo at the CORDEX Central America and South America Training Workshop on Downscaling Techniques, in La Paz, Bolivia, June 25 to 27, 2018.
La Corriente en Chorro del Caribe: Observaciones, modelado multifísica, interacciones multiescala e impacto regional
El tema central de la propuesta es el estudio de la Corriente en Chorro del Caribe (CLLJ por sus siglas en inglés). El CLLJ es uno de los mecanismos físicos más importantes para entender el clima, la variabilidad climática ...
