(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.
A climate change vulnerability index and case study in a Brazilian Coastal City
Coastal areas are highly susceptible to the effects of climate change, particularly to sea-level rise and extreme rainfall events, resulting in increased social and environmental vulnerabilities. In this context, the need ...
Assessing resilience to climate change in the US cities
In the face of uncertainties associated with climate change, building adaptive capacity and resilience at the community level emerges as an essential and timely element of local planning. However, key social factors that ...
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, ...
Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas
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 ...
The effect of climate change on electricity expenditures in Massachusetts
Climate change affects consumer expenditures by altering the consumption of and price for electricity. Previous analyses focus solely on the former, which implicitly assumes that climate-induced changes in consumption do ...
Correlated Morphological and Genetic Patterns in Embothrium coccineum (Proteaceae) Across Climate and Geography: Can Embothrium Survive Patagonian Climate Change?
(Csiro Publishing, 2013-12)
Adaptive radiation and reproductive isolation can determine the biogeographic structure of any species. We examine patterns of biotic variation in Embothrium coccineum, a Proteaceae tree that spans 20º of latitude and is ...
