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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Connections between the Intertropical Convergence Zone and other climatic features in Central America
This work explores statistical connections between the displacements and strength of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and the Caribbean Low Level Jet (CLLJ). Indicators of the position and of the strength of the ...
The Caribbean Low-Level Jet, the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone and Precipitation Patterns in the Intra-Americas Sea: A Proposed Dynamical Mechanism
Data from the Global Precipitation Climatology Project covering Central America, the Caribbean Sea, the eastern tropical Pacific and northern South America are used to compute four indexes that describe characteristics ...
Clima, variabilidad y cambio climático en la Vertiente Caribe de Costa Rica: Un estudio básico para la actividad bananera
Este Informe Final (IF) describe en forma sintética, los alcances y productos del proyecto “Clima, variabilidad y cambio climático en la Vertiente Caribe de Costa Rica: Un estudio básico para la actividad bananera”, en ...
Observed Changes (1970-1999) in Extreme Hydroclimatic Events in Central America
Previous studies have shown that most of Central America has been experiencing warming trends during the last 30-50 years, while precipitation annual totals have not changed much. Warming alone can exacerbate the effects ...
Prediction of MJ rainfall season using CCA models
The prediction of the May-June (MJ) precipitation as the first peak of the rainy season is important in the Central American isthmus because wetter (drier) MJ seasons tend to be associated with early (late) onsets of the ...
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 ...
