Análisis del impacto del paso de los Ciclones Tropicales en el Mar Caribe sobre Costa Rica en las últimas décadas
Analysis of the Caribbean Sea Tropical Cyclone occurrences in the last four decades and their impacts in Costa Rica
El estudio de la actividad de los ciclones tropicales así como su caracterización histórica en la región centroamericana, es una prioridad para mitigar el impacto que estos fenómenos provocan en las diversas zonas del ...
Characterization and prediction of the Mid Summer Drought in the Tempisque river basin, North of Costa Rica, Central America, using ENSO and AMO relationships
On the Pacific slope of Central America, the precipitation annual cycle is characterized by two rainfall maxima in June and September-October, an extended dry season from November to May, and a shorter reduced precipitation ...
Predicción estacional del veranillo en dos cuencas de la vertiente del Pacífico de Costa Rica, América Central (Seasonal prediction of the mid summer drought in two Pacific slope river basins of Costa Rica, Central America)
(Memorias del VII Congreso de la Red Latinoamericana de Ciencias Ambientales “Forjando sinergias para la sostenibilidad”, 2013-11)
The Eastern Tropical Pacific region is characterized by climate features rarely observed in tropical regions, one of them is the Mid-Summer Drought (MSD), “veranillo” or “canícula” in Spanish. On the Pacific slope of ...
On the variability of the Caribbean lowlevel jet during winter: revisited
(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 ...
Observed (1970-1999) climate variability in Central America using a high-resolution meteorological dataset with potential for climate change studies
Average temperature (Tavg) data from stations and station-based gridded datasets at 50 km resolution were used to provide a high-resolution (5 km grid) dataset for Central America from 1970 to 1999. The procedure used ...
The necessity for tailoring seasonal climate forecast in Central America for urban and coastal areas, including physics and human dimensions
(Memories of the WCRP Conference for Latin America and the Caribbean: Developing, linking, and applying climate knowledge, 2014-03)
Recent assessment analyses in Central America showed that trends in the annual number of impacts and disasters related with hydro-meteorology causes cannot be explained by climate trends only. That means that other ...
Putting into action the REGCM4.6 regional climate model for the study of climate change, variability and modeling over Central America and Mexico
What: International experts and attendees from several countries of Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean (CAM), and South America (SA) met to discuss regional issues on climate variability and climate change to learn the ...
Climate scenarios and impacts of droughts and other hydrometeorological events in the Central American dry corridor
Escenarios climáticos e impactos de las sequías y otros eventos hidrometeorológicos en el Corredor Seco Centroamericano (CSC)
Predicting rainfall during April-May-June (AMJ), as the first peak of the rainy season in the Central American isthmus, is very important since it has been observed that more or less humid conditions during AMJ tend to ...
Parametrización de modelo hidrológico para el acuífero costero Huacas Tamarindo, Santa Cruz Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Uno de los principales elementos para el progreso de una región es el recurso hídrico, ya que es el servicio ecosistémico base para el desarrollo de la vida y las actividades socioeconómicas. Uno de los principales retos ...
CMIP5 climate change hydroclimatic projections for Central America
A review of a series of articles related to the use of General Circulation Models (GCMs) projections for characterizing future climate changes in Central America are presented. Previous work using Coupled Model Intercomparison ...
