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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Proyecciones climáticas para la Isla del Coco de un conjunto de modelos CMIP5
Se seleccionaron 14 corridas de modelos climáticos globales de circulación general que generan proyecciones climáticas mensuales de precipitación y temperatura del grupo llamado (CMIP5), AR5, IPCC. La selección de los ...
Assessment of Central America Regional Climate Outlook Forum maps, 1998-2013
Starting 1997, the Regional Climate Outlook Forums or RCOFs have taken place in different Latin American countries, as an effort to generate climatic prediction products. “since 2000, the Forum is organized in Central ...
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 ...
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 ...
