Impacto de los ciclones tropicales del Atlántico en América Central 1868 - 1869
In the years of 1968 and 1969, the hurricane season was very active near the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica; however, at present there are not studies of the impact of these systems over the different socioeconomic sector ...
Atmospheric forcing of cool subsurface water events in Bahía Culebra, Gulf of Papagayo, Costa Rica
(Revista Biología Tropical, 60 (2): 173-186, 2012-04)
Bahía Culebra, at Gulf of Papagayo on the north Pacific coast of Costa Rica, is an area of seasonal upwelling where more intense cooling events may occur during some boreal winter weeks mainly. To study these extreme cool ...
Un método para evaluar el enriquecimiento de metales en sedimentos marinos en Costa Rica
(Revista Biología Tropical 60 (2): 197-211, 2012-04-01)
A method to evaluate metal enrichment in marine sediments. In order to evaluate metal enrichment in sediments , a method is proposed and tested in Bahia Culebra and the Golfo de Nicoya, Costa Rica through the normalization ...
Climate of an oceanic island in the Eastern Pacific: Isla del Coco, Costa Rica, Central America
Studies of atmosphere-ocean interaction in the Pacific of Costa Rican are scarce. To identify oceanographic systems that may be influencing climate near Cocos Island (Eastern Tropical Pacific Seascape) we conducted six ...
Predicción estacional para ASO de eventos extremos y días con precipitación sobre las vertientes Pacífico y Caribe de América Central, utilizando análisis de correlación canónica
Seasonal prediction of extreme precipitation events, and frequency of rainy days for ASO over the
Pacific and Caribbean slopes of Central America using Canonical Correlation Analysis
Models were generated based on Canonical Correlation Analysis for prediction of extreme precipitation events during August-September-October (ASO), using as predictor the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) due to the hydrological ...
Clima y temperatura sub-superficial del mar en Bahía Culebra, Golfo de Papagayo, Costa Rica
Climate and subsurface sea temperature in Bahía Culebra, Costa Rica
(Revista Biología Tropical, 60 (2): 159-171, 2012-04)
Bahía Culebra, Golfo de Papagayo, Costa Rica is a seasonal upwelling area. To determine the relationship of climate and the subsurface temperature variability at Bahía Culebra, we analyzed nine records of sea subsurface ...
