Trends and variability of precipitation extremes in the Peruvian Altiplano (1971–2013)
(John Wiley and Sons, 2020-05-24)
Precipitation extremes have been investigated throughout the last decades in different regions of the Andes. However, little attention has been paid to the Altiplano region (Central Andes), especially to the Peruvian ...
Cutoff low over the southeastern Pacific Ocean: a case study
Cutoff lows (COLs) are infrequent events in the tropics that can cause extreme rainfall, flash flooding and landslides in arid areas, such as western South America. In this study, the life cycle of a COL in the southeastern ...
Assessing near real-time satellite precipitation products for flood simulations at sub-daily scales in a sparsely gauged watershed in Peruvian andes
(MDPI AG, 2021-02-23)
This study investigates the applicability of Satellite Precipitation Products (SPPs) in near real-time for the simulation of sub-daily runoff in the Vilcanota River basin, located in the southeastern Andes of Peru. The ...
A combined view on precipitation and temperature climatology and trends in the southern Andes of Peru
(John Wiley and Sons, 2020-05-13)
In the southern Peruvian Andes, communities are highly dependent on climatic conditions due to the mainly rain-fed agriculture and the importance of glaciers and snow melt as a freshwater resource. Longer-term trends and ...
Dry season circulation-type classification applied to precipitation and temperature in the Peruvian Andes
(John Wiley and Sons, 2020-04-07)
We present the first systematic classification of circulation regimes that characterize the Tropical Andes during the dry season (May–August). We apply the hierarchical k-means clustering method to ERA-Interim reanalysis ...
