    • On the variability of the Caribbean lowlevel jet during winter: revisited 

      Maldonado Mora, Tito José; Rutgersson, Anna; Amador Astúa, Jorge Alberto; Alfaro Martínez, Eric J.; Claremar, Björn (Memorias de la European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2014, 2014-04)
      The Caribbean low-level jet (CLLJ) is a strong wind current over the Caribbean Sea. Annually it has two peak periods, where February and July being the winter and summer components, respectively. The CLLJ is an important ...
    • Regional precipitation estimations in Central America using the Weather Research and Forecast model 

      Maldonado Mora, Tito José; Alfaro Martínez, Eric J.; Amador Astúa, Jorge Alberto; Rutgersson, Anna (2018-04)
      Using the regional climate model WRF, and the NCEP-NCAR Reanalysis Project data as boundary and initial conditions, regional precipitation for Central America was estimated by means of the dynamical downscaling technique ...
    • The role of the meridional sea surface temperature gradient in controlling the Caribbean low-level jet 

      Maldonado Mora, Tito José; Rutgersson, Anna; Caballero, Rodrigo; Pausata, Francesco Salvatore Rocco; Alfaro Martínez, Eric J.; Amador Astúa, Jorge Alberto (2017)
      The Caribbean low‐level jet (CLLJ) is an important modulator of regional climate, especially precipitation, in the Caribbean and Central America. Previous work has inferred, due to their semiannual cycle, an association ...
