Humedales del Parque Nacional Chirripó, Costa Rica: características, relaciones geomorfológicas y escenarios de cambio climático
Wetlands of the Chirripó National Park, Costa Rica: characteristics, geomorphological relationships and climate change scenarios.
The geomorphological, climatological and hydrological characteristics of the high Andean wetlands of the Chirripó National Park (PNCh) are analyzed. The PNCh is located in south-central Costa Rica, Central America. This ...
Mapping Environmental and Socioeconomic impacts of hydrometeorological hazards across Central America. Study case: Honduras
Mapeo de los impactos ambientales y socioeconómicos de las amenazas hidrometeorológicas en América Central. Estudio de caso: Honduras
Hydrometeorological hazards have historically affected Central America and significantly impacted the isthmus. However, the spatial distribution of those impacts is heterogeneous and depends on several factors, such as ...
Creación de escenarios de inundación en la Ciudad de Puntarenas ante el aumento del nivel del mar
Creating scenarios of flooding in the city of Puntarenas to the sea level rise
Se analizan cuatro fenómenos que pueden aumentar el nivel del mar, como lo son: el cambio climático, el fenómeno de El Niño, apilamiento de oleaje y mareas astronómicas. Este estudio se realizó a partir de modelos, ...
The Central American Dry Corridor: A Consensus Statement and its Background
A unique gathering of climate, development and environmental experts took place from September 25-28, 2017 in San José and Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica. The subject of their deliberations was the Central American Dry ...
Spatially distributed tracer‐aided modelling to explore water and isotope transport, storage and mixing in a pristine, humid tropical catchment
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. ...
Tracing Water Sources and Fluxes in a Dynamic Tropical Environment: From Observations to Modeling
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 ...
Spatial and temporal patterns, trends and teleconnection of cumulative rainfall deficits across Central America
Central America is a region vulnerable to hydrometeorological threats. Recently, the impacts of droughts caused higher economic losses in comparison to, for example, floods and landslides. This study focuses on the ...
Headwaters drive streamflow and lowland tracer export in a large‐scale humid tropical catchment
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 ...
Modelling non‐stationary water ages in a tropical rainforest: A preliminary spatially distributed assessment
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 ...
Member and Bayesian mixing models consistently indicate near‐surface flowpath dominance in a pristine humid tropical rainforest
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. ...
