Cambio climático y su efecto sobre los servicios ecosistémicos en dos parques nacionales de Costa Rica, América Central
En el presente artículo se realiza un análisis de los principales servicios ecosistémicos brindados por dos Parques Nacionales de Costa Rica, Palo Verde y Rincón de la Vieja, así como una aproximación al valor de su ...
Precursors of quasi-decadal dry-spells in the Central America Dry Corridor
Although the hydric stress in Central America is generally low, there is a region relatively drier and prone to drought known as the Central America Dry Corridor (CADC). The area of interest is located mainly in the Pacific ...
Dynamical delimitation of the Central American Dry Corridor (CADC) using drought indices and aridity values
The Central American Dry Corridor (CADC) is a sub-region in the isthmus that is relatively drier than the rest of the territory. Traditional delineations of the CADC’s boundaries start at the Pacific coast of southern ...
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 ...
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 (1970–1999) climate variability in Central America using a high-resolution meteorological dataset with implication to climate change studies
High spatial resolution of precipitation (P) and average air temperature (Tavg) datasets are ideal for determining the spatial patterns associated with large-scale atmospheric and oceanic indexes, and climate change and ...
Some physical and socio-economic aspects of climate change in Central America
(Progress in Physical Geography: pp. 1-21, 2012-06)
The relative magnitude of precipitation and temperature changes obtained from 21st-century climate change projections from general circulation models (GCMs) is compared to the changes in a selection of socioeconomic ...
Global Model selection for evaluation of Climate Change projections in the Eastern Tropical Pacific Seascape
(Revista Biología Tropical 60 (3): 67-81, 2012-11)
Two methods for selecting a subset of simulations and/or general circulation models (GCMs) from a set of 30 available simulations are compared: 1) Selecting the models based on their performance on reproducing 20th century ...
Las aguas urbanas en Costa Rica
Urban Waters in Costa Rica
Se presenta una síntesis de los principales temas relacionados con las aguas urbanas como lo son el abastecimiento, el saneamiento, la salud, las dimensiones físicas y humanas, las inundaciones y la variabilidad y cambio ...
