AFRICAN DUST: Huge quantities of mineral dust are carried from sources in North Africa to the western Atlantic Ocean every year. Satellite images often show immense dust clouds emerging from the coast of West Africa.
La obra presenta las comunicaciones al VIII congreso Internacional AEC (Salamanca, 2012) distribuidas en tres ponencias: I: Escenarios y modelos climáticos (22 comunicaciones) II: Variabilidad climática y extremos (45 comunicaciones) III: Impactos climáticos (30 comunicaciones)
Se establece el comportamiento temporal de las frecuencias anuales de olas de calor producidas entre 1961 y 2010. A partir de los datos diarios de anomalías de temperatura se determinan las series de anomalías diarias de temperaturas máxima (ATMAD) y mínima (ATMID) para el área de trabajo.
En este estudio se analizaron las tendencias observadas en una serie de índices climáticos relacionados con la ocurrencia de eventos cálidos invernales en la cuenca del río Ebro, noreste de la Península Ibérica, durante el período 1950-2006.
En zonas de latitudes medias, como la Península Ibérica, la existencia de estaciones climáticas claramente definidas permite su estudio detallado a partir de datos observacionales o de resultados de modelos regionales.
The impact of climate change and its relation with evapotranspiration was evaluated in the Duero River Basin (Spain). The study shows possible future situations 50 yr from now from the reference evapotranspiration (ETo).
In this paper we produce projections of seasonal precipitation for four Mediterranean areas: Apulia region (Italy), Ebro river basin (Spain), Po valley (Italy) and Antalya province (Turkey).
Drought events in the Mediterranean are likely to increase in frequency, duration and intensity due to climate change, thereby affecting crop production. Information about drought is valuable for river basin authorities and the farmers affected by their decisions.
Natural hazards, due to climate change, are particularly damaging in urban areas because of interdependencies of their networks. So, urban resilience has to face up to climate risks. The most impacting phenomenon is the urban heat island (UHI) effect.
This paper examines the spatial and temporal rainfall characteristics of the region of Valencia, Western Mediterranean Basin (east Spain), during the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) normal period 1961–1990.
