Discharge simulation in the sub-basins of the Amazon using ORCHIDEE forced by new datasets
(Copernicus GmbH, 2012-03)
The aim of this study is to evaluate the ability of the ORCHIDEE land surface model to simulate streamflows over each sub-basin of the Amazon River basin. For this purpose, simulations are performed with a routing module ...
Spatio-temporal rainfall variability in the Amazon basin countries (Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, and Ecuador)
(Wiley Online Library, 2009-09)
Rainfall variability in the Amazon basin (AB) is analysed for the 1964-2003 period. It is based on 756 pluviometric stations distributed throughout the AB countries. For the first time it includes data from Bolivia, Peru, ...
Basin-scale analysis of rainfall and runoff in Peru (1969–2004): Pacific, Titicaca and Amazonas drainages
(Taylor and Francis Ltd., 2012-06)
According to the Peruvian agricultural ministry, the Pacific watersheds where the great cities and intense farming are located only benefit from 1% of the available freshwater in Peru. Hence a thorough knowledge of the ...
Climate variability and extreme drought in the upper Solimões River (western Amazon Basin): Understanding the exceptional 2010 drought
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2011-07)
This work provides an initial overview of climate features and their related hydrological impacts during the recent extreme droughts (1995, 1998, 2005 and 2010) in the upper Solimes River (western Amazon), using comprehensive ...
Chemical weathering and atmospheric/soil CO2 uptake in the Andean and Foreland Amazon basins
(Elsevier B.V., 2011-08)
This study is a geochemical investigation of the Andean and Foreland basins of the Amazon River at high spatial and time resolution, carried out within the framework of the HYBAM research program (Hydro-geodynamics of the ...
Assessment of climate change impacts on the hydrology of the Peruvian Amazon-Andes basin
In this article, we propose an investigation of the modifications of the hydrological response of two Peruvian Amazonas-Andes basins in relationship with the modifications of the precipitation and evapotranspiration rates ...
Evaluation of GPM-era Global Satellite Precipitation Products over Multiple Complex Terrain Regions
The great success of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) and its successor Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) has accelerated the development of global high-resolution satellite-based precipitation products ...
Identifying, attributing, and overcoming common data quality issues of manned station observations
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2017-03-20)
In situ climatological observations are essential for studies related to climate trends and extreme events. However, in many regions of the globe, observational records are affected by a large number of data quality issues. ...
Summertime precipitation deficits in the southern Peruvian highlands since 1964
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2019-03)
Precipitation deficits remain a concern to the rural population in the southern Peruvian highlands and knowledge about their occurrence is lacking because of scarce data availability. For mountainous regions with sparse ...
Comparative ground validation of IMERG and TMPA at variable spatiotemporal scales in the tropical Andes
(American Meteorological Society, 2017-09)
An initial ground validation of the Integrated Multisatellite Retrievals for GPM (IMERG) Day-1 product from March 2014 to August 2015 is presented for the tropical Andes. IMERG was evaluated along with the Tropical Rainfall ...
