(Hydro)climatological studies of climate change and variability in Central America
This is the presentation of Hugo Hidalgo at the CORDEX Central America and South America Training Workshop on Downscaling Techniques, in La Paz, Bolivia, June 25 to 27, 2018.
Community structure and dynamics in climate networks
We consider climate networks constructed from observed and model simulated fields of three climate variables and investigate their community structure. We find that for all fields the number of effective communities is ...
Climate Variability and Change in South America: ENSO, Decadal Variability and Climate Change in South America: Trends, Teleconnections, and Potential Impacts; Guayaquil, Ecuador, 12-14 October 2010
El Niño and the Southern Oscillation (ENSO) have profound effects on South American climate. Warm ENSO events (El Niños) and cold ENSO events (La Niñas), which occur on year-to-year time scales, are associated with droughts, ...
Climate change and natural disasters
(Universidad de Chile, 2015-12)
Intense climate-related disasters—floods, storms, droughts, and heat waves—have been on the rise worldwide. At the same time and coupled with an increasing concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, temperatures, ...
Creative Climate: A Diagnosis for Innovating Educational and Bussines Organizations
(Universidad de Palermo, 2000)
The purpose of this research was to identify the variables wich influence the creative climate and the innovation in private and public organizations, considering in this category schools and companies. The sample was ...
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 ...
Confronting Farmers’ Perceptions of Climatic Vulnerability with Observed Relationships between Yields and Climate Variability in Central Argentina
(American Meteorological Society, 2015-01)
Farmers’ perceptions of climate variability is compared with the sensitivity of observed yields for wheat, maize, soybean, and sunflower crops to interannual and intra-annual climate variability in two districts (Junín and ...
Region-level yield and area price elasticities for Chilean wheat incorporating climate variables
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Facultad de Agronomía e Ingeniería Forestal, 2010)
Sensitivity of Nothofagus dombeyi tree growth to climate changes along a precipitation gradient in northern Patagonia, Argentina
Understanding forest responses to climate variations is urgently needed for anticipating changes in forest composition and biodiversity. We use twelve tree-ring chronologies from Nothofagus dombeyi, the dominant tree at ...
The necessity for tailoring seasonal climate forecast in Central America for urban and coastal areas, including physics and human dimensions
(Memories of the WCRP Conference for Latin America and the Caribbean: Developing, linking, and applying climate knowledge, 2014-03)
Recent assessment analyses in Central America showed that trends in the annual number of impacts and disasters related with hydro-meteorology causes cannot be explained by climate trends only. That means that other ...
