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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Regional precipitation estimations in Central America using the Weather Research and Forecast model
Estimaciones de precipitación regional en América Central usando el model Weather Research and Forecast
Using the regional climate model WRF, and the NCEP-NCAR Reanalysis Project data as boundary and initial conditions, regional precipitation for Central America was estimated by means of the dynamical downscaling technique ...

Importance of the reach of the social networks of CIGEFI-UCR: A study of the data according to the publications made between 1979-2015
Desde 1979, el Centro de Investigaciones Geofísicas (CIGEFI) de la Universidad de Costa Rica (UCR) ha evolucionado constantemente hasta convertirse en un referente regional de la Geofísica. Esto ha sido facilitado por ...
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 ...
