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 ...
Hydrological climate change projections for Central America
(Journal of Hydrology 495: 94–112, 2013-05-04)
Runoff climate change projections for the 21st century were calculated from a suite of 30 General Circulation Model (GCM) simulations for the A1B emission scenario in a 0.5 0.5 grid over Central America. The GCM data ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Regional modeling of climate change impacts on smallholder agriculture and ecosystems in Central America
Climate change will have serious repercussions for agriculture, ecosystems, and farmer livelihoods in Central America. Smallholder farmers are particularly vulnerable due to their reliance on agriculture and ecosystem ...
Proyecciones climáticas para la Isla del Coco de un conjunto de modelos CMIP5
Se seleccionaron 14 corridas de modelos climáticos globales de circulación general que generan proyecciones climáticas mensuales de precipitación y temperatura del grupo llamado (CMIP5), AR5, IPCC. La selección de los ...
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 ...
