    • Connections between the Intertropical Convergence Zone and other climatic features in Central America 

      Hidalgo León, Hugo G.; Alfaro Martínez, Eric J.; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Amador Astúa, Jorge Alberto (2013-05-30)
      This work explores statistical connections between the displacements and strength of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and the Caribbean Low Level Jet (CLLJ). Indicators of the position and of the strength of the ...
    • La Corriente en Chorro del Caribe: Observaciones, modelado multifísica, interacciones multiescala e impacto regional 

      Amador Astúa, Jorge Alberto; Maldonado Mora, Tito José; Rivera Fernández, Erick; Alfaro Martínez, Eric J.; Castillo Rodríguez, Rodrigo; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Garbanzo Salas, Marcial; Hidalgo León, Hugo G.; Mora Rojas, Gabriela; Vega Riquelme, Carmen Paulina (2018-06)
      El tema central de la propuesta es el estudio de la Corriente en Chorro del Caribe (CLLJ por sus siglas en inglés). El CLLJ es uno de los mecanismos físicos más importantes para entender el clima, la variabilidad climática ...
    • Deciphering key processes controlling rainfall isotopic variability during extreme tropical cyclones 

      Sánchez Murillo, Ricardo; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Esquivel Hernández, Germain; Rojas Cantillano, Daniela; Birkel Dostal, Christian; Welsh, Kristen; Sánchez Llull, Minerva; Alonso Hernández, Carlos M.; Tetzlaff, Doerthe; Soulsby, Chris; Boll, Jan; Kurita, Naoyuki; Cobb, Kim M. (2019)
      The Mesoamerican and Caribbean (MAC) region is characterized by tropical cyclones (TCs), strong El Niño-Southern Oscillation events, and climate variability that bring unique hazards to socio-ecological systems. Here we ...
    • Dynamical downscaling of historical climate over CORDEX Central America domain with a regionally coupled atmosphere–ocean model 

      Cabos Narvaez, William David; Sein, Dmitry V.; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Liguori, Giovanni; Koldunov, Nikolay V.; Martínez López, Benjamín; Álvarez García, Francisco José; Sieck, Kevin; Limareva, Natalia; Pinto, Joaquim G. (2018-08)
      The climate in Mexico and Central America is influenced by the Pacific and the Atlantic oceanic basins and atmospheric conditions over continental North and South America. These factors and important ocean–atmosphere coupled ...
    • Moisture sources for Central America: Identification of moisture sources using a Lagrangian analysis technique 

      Durán Quesada, Ana María; Gimeno, Luis; Amador Astúa, Jorge Alberto; Nieto, R. (2010-03)
      We herein present an analysis of the sources of atmospheric moisture for Central America using a Lagrangian technique. The results of backward and forward moisture tracking analysis using the FLEXPART model has enabled the ...
    • Oceanic and terrestrial sources of continental precipitation 

      Gimeno, Luis; Stohl, Andreas; Trigo, Ricardo M.; Dominguez, Francina; Yoshimura, Kei; Yu, Lisan; Drumond, Anita; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Nieto, Raquel (American Geophysical Union 50:1-41, 2012-11-08)
      The most important sources of atmospheric moisture at the global scale are herein identified, both oceanic and terrestrial, and a characterization is made of how continental regions are influenced by water from different ...
    • Preface to stable isotopes in hydrological studies in the tropics: Ecohydrological perspectives in a changing climate 

      Sánchez Murillo, Ricardo; Durán Quesada, Ana María (2019)
      Tropical regions (comprised between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, 23.5°N to 23.5°S) cover approximately 36% of the Earth's landmass. They are home to 40% of the world's population, which is projected to increase ...
    • Role of moisture transport for Central American precipitation 

      Durán Quesada, Ana María; Gimeno, Luis; Amador Astúa, Jorge Alberto (2017)
      A climatology of moisture sources linked with Central American precipitation was computed based upon Lagrangian trajectories for the analysis period 1980–2013. The response of the annual cycle of precipitation in terms of ...
    • The Caribbean Low-Level Jet, the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone and Precipitation Patterns in the Intra-Americas Sea: A Proposed Dynamical Mechanism
