The role of the meridional sea surface temperature gradient in controlling the Caribbean low-level jet
The Caribbean low‐level jet (CLLJ) is an important modulator of regional climate, especially precipitation, in the Caribbean and Central America. Previous work has inferred, due to their semiannual cycle, an association ...
Dos propuestas de clasificación climática para la vertiente Caribe costarricense según el sistema de Thornthwaite
Una alta variabilidad espacio-temporal en la temperatura y la precipitación son características del territorio costarricense, con una diferencia climática fuerte entre las dos vertientes, la Pacífica y el Caribe. La primera ...
Interannual variability of the midsummer drought in Central America and the connection with sea surface temperatures
The midsummer drought (MSD) in Central America is characterised in order to create annual indexes representing the timing of its phases (start, minimum and end), and other features relevant for MSD forecasting such as the ...
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 ...
The early rainy season in Central America: the role of thetropical North Atlantic SSTs
We explored the relationship between the precipitation anomalies during May to June as the first peak of the rainy season in the Pacific slope of Central America, and sea surface temperature (SST) fluctuations in the ...
