Chirripó Hydrological Research Site: advancing stable isotope hydrology in the Central American Páramo
The Chirripó Hydrological Research Site (CHRS) is located within the Chirripó National Park, Costa Rica (between 3,100-3,820 m asl) whereby ~100 km2 are covered by Páramo, a high‐elevation tropical grassland ecosystem. A ...
Spatial and Temporal Variation of Stable Isotopes in Precipitation across Costa Rica: An Analysis of Historic GNIP Records
The location of Costa Rica on the Central American Isthmus creates unique microclimate systems that receive moisture inputs directly from the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. In Costa Rica, stable isotope monitoring ...
Key hydrological processes in the Del Azul Creek basin, sub-humid Pampean Plain
(Elsevier B.V., 2021-02)
Groundwater plays an important role in the economic development of the Chaco-Pampean Plain (Argentina), where industry, agriculture and cattle farming are the main economic activities. The 66% of the country's population ...
Modelling non-stationary water ages in a tropical rainforest: A preliminary spatially distributed assessment
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2020)
Pristine tropical forests play a critical role in regional and global climate systems. For a better understanding of the eco-hydrology of tropical “evergreen” vegetation, it is essential to know the partitioning of water ...
Tracking the water fingerprints of Cocos Island: A stable isotope analysis of precipitation, surface water, and groundwater
(Revista de Biología Tropical, 2016)
The use of stable isotopes of water, both δ2H and δ18O has provided novel insights in hydrological studies, ecological applications, understanding climate variability, and reconstructing paleoclimate. However, information ...
