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 ...
Response of air surface temperature over Central America to oceanic climate variability indices.
In this study were used 337 grid points (0.5 ° latitude x 0. 5° longitude), over Central America, from a monthly air surface temperature data set. The annual cycle, secular trend and decadal variability were removed and ...
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 ...
Eventos cálidos y fríos en el Atlántico Tropical Norte
The warm an cold events in the Tropical North Atlantic (6-22°n,15-80°w) region are quantified using sea using sea surface temperature (sst) normalizad indices. a arm (cold) event was definied if the 5-mounth running mean ...
Some Characteristics of the Annual Precipitation Cycle in Central America and their Relationships with its Surrounding Tropical Oceans
Usando 94 estaciones pluviométricas de registro diario, se calcularon los ciclos anuales promedio dominantes en la región centroamericana por medio del análisis de funciones ortogonales empíricas. Esto permitió estimar ...
Influencia del océano Atlántico tropical sobre el comportamiento de la primera parte de la estación lluviosa en Venezuela
The Statistical Ocean Model System, based in Canonical Correlation Analysis, was used to study the relationships between the Tropical Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and the precipitation anomalies in Venezuela for the first ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
