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 ...

Descifrando la historia completa: un estudio ultraestructural de la enfermedad del amachamiento del frijol causada por Aphelencoides besseyi
Se identificó Aphelencoides besseyi como responsable del amachamiento del frijol
Caribbean sea tropical cyclone occurrences in the last six decades and their impacts in central america and the caribbean islands
The study of the tropical cyclones activity in the Caribbean (Figs. 1 & 2), and their historic characterization in the Central American region, is a basic element to mitigate their impact over different regions of the ...
Discrete analysis for the America west coast rainfall predictability using El Niño/Southern Oscillation relationships
(Memorias del Tercer Congreso de Oceanografía Física, Meteorología y Clima del Pacífico Sur Oriental, 2013-10-16)
The objective of the study was to determine the probability of occurrence of wet or dry season events, based on the phase of El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon using multinomial response logit and logit regression ...
Importancia de la investigación sobre polinización ornitofílica y la creación de catálogos de polen
Las aves cumplen un rol crítico en los bosques tropicales al polinizar flores y dispersar las semillas de muchas especies (Kato 2017, Rocca y Sazima 2008, Stiles y Skuth 1989). Los colibríes son el principal grupo de aves ...
Characterization of the Mid Summer Drought in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, Central America
(AGU Meeting of the Americas 2013, 2013)
The IAS region is characterized by climate features of unique nature, one of them is the Mid-Summer Drought (MSD), “veranillo” or “canícula” in Spanish, an atmospheric attribute rarely observed in tropical regions. On ...
Analysis of climate impacts in Costa Rica, Central America, from local historical information sources
(8th Alexander von Humboldt International Conference: Natural Disasters, Global Change, and the Preservation of World Heritage Sites". 12-16/11/2012. Cusco, Perú., 2012-11-12)
Central America and Mexico is a region that account for many World Heritage Sites. Among the climate hazards that affects this rich world heritage place of the world are the boreal winter cold fronts intrusions, also known ...
Muscarinic and glutamatergic regulation of self-grooming behavior and ultrasonic vocalizations in the context of open-field habituation in rats
We tested whether pharmacological impairment of OF-habituation after the administration (i.p.) of scopolamine (SCP; muscarinic antagonist) or MK-801 (MK; NMDA antagonist) was able to disrupt or alter grooming syntaxes. ...
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 ...
Observed Changes (1970-1999) in Extreme Hydroclimatic Events in Central America
Previous studies have shown that most of Central America has been experiencing warming trends during the last 30-50 years, while precipitation annual totals have not changed much. Warming alone can exacerbate the effects ...
