    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
