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 ...
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 ...
Impacts of different ENSO flavors and tropical Pacific convection variability (ITCZ, SPCZ) on austral summer rainfall in South America, with a focus on Peru
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2018-01)
El Niño in the eastern and central Pacific has different impacts on the rainfall of South America, and the atmospheric pathways through the South Pacific Convergence Zone (SPCZ) and Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) ...
Impacts of El Niño and La Niña in the precipitation over Perú (1965-2007)
(Sociedade Brasileira de Meteorologia, 2014-06)
The impacts of El Niño (EN) and La Niña (LN) in rainfall in Peru are evaluated using monthly data (1965-2007) of 155 stations distributed over the three hydrographic drainages of Peru: 85 in the Pacific (VP), 21 in the ...
Downscaling climate projections for the Peruvian coastal Chancay-Huaral Basin to support river discharge modeling with WEAP
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-10)
Study region The Chancay-Huaral (CH) coastal river basin in the Lima Region, Peru, between the Pacific Ocean and the Andean Cordillera. Study focus Climate change impacts on annual and monthly discharges in the CH Basin ...
Assessing multidecadal runoff (1970–2010) using regional hydrological modelling under data and water scarcity conditions in Peruvian Pacific catchment
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2019-01)
In a context of water scarcity in Peruvian Pacific catchments as a crucial issue for Peru, added to the paucity of data availability, we propose a methodology that provides new perspectives for freshwater availability ...
Temporal variability and annual budget of inorganic dissolved matter in Andean Pacific Rivers located along a climate gradient from northern Ecuador to southern Peru
(Elsevier Masson SAS, 2018-02)
In Ecuador and Peru, geochemical information from Pacific coastal rivers is limited and scarce. Here, we present an unedited database of major element concentrations from five HYBAM observatory stations monitored monthly ...
Modelling the water balance in the glacierized Parón Lake basin (White Cordillera, Peru)
(Taylor & Francis, 2008)
The White Cordillera (northern Peru), with a glacial surface of 631 km2, is the largest glacierized mountain range in the Tropics. Due to the lack of physical data from most of its sub-basins, it is difficult to build a ...
Hydrological and depositional processes associated with recent glacier recession in Yanamarey catchment, Cordillera Blanca (Peru)
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-02)
In this study, we investigate changes in the glaciated surface and the formation of lakes in the headwater of the Querococha watershed in Cordillera Blanca (Peru) using 24 Landsat images from 1975 to 2014. Information of ...
Water resources and climate change impact modelling on a daily time scale in the Peruvian Andes
(Taylor and Francis Ltd., 2014-11)
Estimating water resources is important for adequate water management in the future, but suitable data are often scarce. We estimated water resources in the Vilcanota basin (Peru) for the 1998–2009 period with the ...
