    • 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 ...
    • Headwaters drive streamflow and lowland tracer export in a large‐scale humid tropical catchment 

      Birkel Dostal, Christian; Correa Barahona, Alicia; Martínez Martínez, Marco Antonio; Granados Bolaños, Sebastián; Venegas Cordero, Nelson; Gutiérrez García, Kenneth; Blanco Ramírez, Sara; Quesada Mora, Rafael; Solano Rivera, Vanessa; Mussio Mora, Jason; Chavarría Palma, Andrés; Vargas Arias, Katherine; Moore, Georgianne W.; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Vasquez Morera, Javier; Soulsby, Chris; Tetzlaff, Doerthe; Espinoza Cisneros, Edgar; Sánchez Murillo, Ricardo (2020)
      Headwaters are generally assumed to contribute the majority of water to downstream users, but how much water, of what quality and where it is generated are rarely known in the humid tropics. Here, using monthly monitoring ...
    • Member and Bayesian mixing models consistently indicate near‐surface flowpath dominance in a pristine humid tropical rainforest 

      Birkel Dostal, Christian; Correa Barahona, Alicia; Duvert, Clément; Granados Bolaños, Sebastián; Chavarría Palma, Andrés; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Sánchez Murillo, Ricardo; Biester, Harald (2021)
      The impacts of forest conversion on runoff generation in the tropics have received much interest, but scientific progress is still hampered by challenging fieldwork conditions and limited knowledge about runoff mechanisms. ...
    • Modelling non‐stationary water ages in a tropical rainforest: A preliminary spatially distributed assessment 

      Correa, Andrea; Birkel Dostal, Christian; Gutiérrez, Jason; Dehaspe, Joni; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Soulsby, Chris; Sánchez Murillo, Ricardo (2020)
      Pristine tropical forests play a critical role in regional and global climate systems. For a better understanding of the eco-hydrology of tropical “evergreen” vegetation, it is essential to know the partitioning of water ...
    • 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 ...
    • Spatially distributed tracer‐aided modelling to explore water and isotope transport, storage and mixing in a pristine, humid tropical catchment 

      Dehaspe, Joni; Tetzlaff, Doerthe; Sánchez Murillo, Ricardo; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Soulsby, Chris; Birkel Dostal, Christian (2018)
      Rapidly transforming headwater catchments in the humid tropics provide important resources for drinking water, irrigation, hydropower, and ecosystem connectivity. However, such resources for downstream use remain unstudied. ...
    • The residence time of water vapour in the atmosphere 

      Gimeno Presa, Luis; Eiras Barca, Jorge; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Domínguez, Francina; van der Ent, Ruud; Sodemann, Harald; Sánchez Murillo, Ricardo; Nieto, Raquel; Kirchner, James W. (2021-07-13)
      Atmospheric water vapour residence time (WVRT) is an essential indicator of how atmospheric dynamics and thermodynamics mediate hydrological cycle responses to climate change. WVRT is also important in estimating moisture ...
    • Tracer hydrology of the data-scarce and heterogeneous Central American Isthmus 

      Sánchez Murillo, Ricardo; Esquivel Hernández, Germain; Corrales Salazar, José Leonardo; Castro Chacón, Laura; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Guerrero Hernández, Manuel; Delgado, Valeria; Barberena Moncada, Javier Antonio; Montenegro Rayo, Katia Lily; Calderón Palma Heyddy; Chevez, Carlos; Peña Paz, Tania María; García Santos, Saúl; Ortiz Roque, Pedro; Alvarado Callejas, Yaneth; Benegas Negri, Laura Andrea; Hernández Antonio, Antonio; Matamoros Ortega, Marcela Isabel; Ortega, Lucia; Terzer Wassmuth, Stefan (2020)
      Numerous socio-economic activities depend on the seasonal rainfall and groundwater recharge cycle across the Central American Isthmus. Population growth and unregulated land use changes resulted in extensive surface water ...
    • Tracing Water Sources and Fluxes in a Dynamic Tropical Environment: From Observations to Modeling 

      Sánchez Murillo, Ricardo; Esquivel Hernández, Germain; Birkel Dostal, Christian; Correa Sandoval, Alfonso; Welsh, Kristen; Durán Quesada, Ana María; Sánchez Gutiérrez, Rolando; Poca, M. (2020)
      Tropical regions cover approximately 36% of the Earth’s landmass. These regions are home to 40% of the world’s population, which is projected to increase to over 50% by 2030 under a remarkable climate variability scenario ...
