Seasonal prediction of extreme precipitation events and frequency of rainy days over Costa Rica, Central America, using Canonical Correlation Analysis
(Advances in Geosciences 33:41-52, 2013-04-02)
High mountains divide Costa Rica, Central America, into two main climate regions, the Pacific and Caribbean slopes, which are lee and windward, respectively, according to the North Atlantic trade winds – the dominant wind ...
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 ...
Regional Precipitation Study in Central America, Using the WRF Model
(Examensarbete vid Institutionen för geovetenskaper, pp.1-45, 2012)
Using the regional climate model WRF, and the NCEP-NCAR Reanalysis Project data as boundary and initial conditions, regional precipitation was estimated by means of the dynamical downscaling technique for two selected ...
Revisión y comparación de escenarios de cambio climático para el Parque Nacional Isla del Coco, Costa Rica
(Revista Biología Tropical 60(3): 83-112, 2012-11)
Different climate change scenarios were revised and compared for Cocos Island National Park, Costa Rica. They were generated using different tools (MAGICC/SCENGEN, PRECIS and SDSM) and for the 2080 (2070- 2099) time slice. ...
On the variability of the Caribbean lowlevel jet during winter: revisited
(Memorias de la European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2014, 2014-04)
The Caribbean low-level jet (CLLJ) is a strong wind current over the Caribbean Sea. Annually it has two peak periods, where February and July being the winter and summer components, respectively. The CLLJ is an important ...
Inter-annual variability of rainfall in Central America: Connection with global and regional climate modulators
Central America is a region regularly affected by natural disasters, with most of them having a hydrometeorological origin. Therefore, the understanding of annual changes of precipitation upon the region is relevant for ...
A review of the main drivers and variability of Central America’s Climate and seasonal forecast systems
Una revisión de los principales controladores y de la variabilidad del clima en América Central y sistemas de pronóstico estacional
América Central es una región susceptible a desastres naturales y cambio climático. En el presente estudio, se revisaron los principales forzantes atmosféricos y oceánicos, así como los moduladores del clima que afectan ...
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 ...
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 ...
Aspects of climate variability during winter and summer in Central America
Climate variability during winter and summer in Central America is examined. In winter, we focused on the interaction between El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO), Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), the Caribbean low-level ...
