Deciphering key processes controlling rainfall isotopic variability during extreme tropical cyclones
The Mesoamerican and Caribbean (MAC) region is characterized by tropical cyclones (TCs), strong El Niño-Southern Oscillation events, and climate variability that bring unique hazards to socio-ecological systems. Here we ...
Groundwater recharge mechanisms inferred from isoscapes in a complex tropical mountainous region
(AGU Publications, 2016-05-23)
Stable isotope variations and groundwater recharge mechanisms remain poorly understood across the tropics, particularly in Central America. Here stable isotopes (δ18O and δ2H) in groundwater, surface water, and rainfall ...
Key drivers controlling stable isotope variations in daily precipitation of Costa Rica: Caribbean Sea versus Eastern Pacific Ocean moisture
Costa Rica is located on the Central American Isthmus, which receives moisture inputs directly from the Caribbean Sea and the Eastern Pacific Ocean. This location includes unique mountainous and lowland microclimates, but ...
Tracer hydrology in a hydrometric data-limited and complex tropical mountainous region: the case of the Central American Isthmus
(European Geosciences Union, 2019)
Numerous socio-economic activities are dependent on the seasonal rainfall and groundwater recharge cycle across the Central American Isthmus. Demographic growth and unregulated land use changes resulted in extensive surface ...
Insight into the stable isotopic composition of glacial lakes in a tropical alpine ecosystem: Chirripó, Costa Rica
(Wiley & Sons, 2018)
Tropical high‐elevation lakes are considered sentinels of global climate change. This work characterizes the hydrological conditions of tropical alpine glacial lakes located in the highlands of Chirripó, Costa Rica, using ...
Preface to Stable isotopes in hydrological studies in the tropics: ecohydrological perspectives in a changing climate
(Wiley & Sons, 2019)
Tropical regions (comprised between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, 23.5°N to 23.5°S) cover approximately 36% of the Earth's landmass. They are home to 40% of the world's population, which is projected to increase ...
