The early rainy season in Central America: the role of thetropical North Atlantic SSTs
We explored the relationship between the precipitation anomalies during May to June as the first peak of the rainy season in the Pacific slope of Central America, and sea surface temperature (SST) fluctuations in the ...
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. ...
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 ...
Interannual variability of the midsummer drought in Central America and the connection with sea surface temperatures
The midsummer drought (MSD) in Central America is characterised in order to create annual indexes representing the timing of its phases (start, minimum and end), and other features relevant for MSD forecasting such as the ...
Variability of the Caribbean low-level jet during borealwinter: large-scale forcings
An index capturing the anomalies of the zonal wind at 925 hPa from 1950 to 2010 was defined to explore the relationship between the fluctuations of the Caribbean low-level jet (CLLJ) and the main climate variability modes ...
