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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Hydrological climate change projections for Central America
(Journal of Hydrology 495: 94–112, 2013-05-04)
Runoff climate change projections for the 21st century were calculated from a suite of 30 General Circulation Model (GCM) simulations for the A1B emission scenario in a 0.5 0.5 grid over Central America. The GCM data ...
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 ...
Algunas características de la estratósfera sobre Mesoamérica
Usando las variables de viento y temperatura de 94 estaciones aerológicas del conjunto de datos Comprenhensive Aerological Reference Data Set (CARDS) se estimaron estadísticos relativos a la Oscilación Cuasi Bienal (OCB) ...
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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
