The role of the meridional sea surface temperature gradient in controlling the Caribbean low-level jet
The Caribbean low‐level jet (CLLJ) is an important modulator of regional climate, especially precipitation, in the Caribbean and Central America. Previous work has inferred, due to their semiannual cycle, an association ...
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 ...
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 ...
