This study analyses the La Plata Basin (LPB) hydroclimate response to Solar Radiation Modification (SRM) with Stratospheric Aerosol Injection (SAI) in terms of changes in mean and extreme temperature, rainfall, and river flows simulations from the Geoengineering Large Ensemble (GLENS). The GLENS data used consists of three members simulations of a...

The aim of this study is to understand the interaction between rainfall and streamflow variability in the La Plata basin (LPB) along a wide range of timescales. LPB is divided in six sub-basins associated to the main rivers (Paraguay, Paraná, Uruguay and Iguazú). The amplification of the streamflow response is addressed in order to evaluate to what...

Increased concentrations of atmospheric greenhouse gases have led to a global mean surface temperature 1.0°C higher than during the pre-industrial period. We expand on the recent IPCC Special Report on global warming of 1.5°C and review the additional risks associated with higher levels of warming, each having major implications for multiple geogra...

This policy brief argues in favor of a new urban model that harnesses the power that cities have to curb global warming. Such a model tackles fundamental management challenges in the energy, building and transport sectors to promote the growth of diverse and compact cities. Such a model is essential for meeting complex challenges in cities, such as...

La Plata basin (LPB) is the fifth largest basin in the world and the second in South America. Much of its economy comes from agriculture and hydroelectric power generation which are both highly vulnerable to precipitation variability and change. Given its socio-economic importance, it is essential to generate information that is relevant to hydrolo...

The Andes Cordillera plays a role in driving moisture and heat from tropical onto subtropical South America. It forces the development of a lee-side trough that covers most of western Argentina and a low-level jet that maximizes over Paraguay, eastern Bolivia and northern Argentina and is tightly linked to precipitation variability over much of cen...

In the present study a statistical characterization of the temporal variability of precipitation and runoff derived from the main rivers of La Plata Basin is performed. In particular, it seeks to study further the relationship between the two variables with special emphasis on the amplification of low-frequency variability and the percentage of obs...

The performance of the classical hydrological distributed models is necessarily constrained by the real complexity of the system, the data availability, as well as the approximations involved in the physical processes representation. On the contrary, a simple statistical model in which computations can be undertaken with little computational resour...

In most of Argentina, the warming since 1901 was a little lower than the global average, although with strong trends in temperature extremes and in heat waves during the most recent decades. There was a remarkable increase in precipitation over most of subtropical Argentina, especially since 1960. This has favored agriculture yields and the extensi...

The link between climate change and freshwater resources is a major concern of the scientific community and the society as a whole. However, climate change is only one of several factors that threaten water resources. Land use changes, agrochemicals management and dams’ installation, among others, may also alter the hydrological system. The present...

There is an increasing demand for future climate scenarios, particularly for impact studies. In this study, simulation outputs taken from a set of three Regional Climate Models (RCMs) are used to force a hydrologic model to derive future streamflow scenarios for La Plata Basin (LPB). As RCMs have biases in their mean precipitation and temperature f...

Global climate models (GCMs) constitute the most reliable tool to simulate the processes that will determine climate change at both global and regional scales. Nevertheless, GCMs predictions are subject to considerable uncertainties. In this sense, the confidence to use GCMs should be based on an exhaustive evaluation of their performance, using ob...

Climate predictions from global climate models (GCMs) are subject to considerable uncertainties derived from the grid resolution and parameterization of processes unresolved at the grid scale. These uncertainties are of such extent that different models can show opposite sign of changes expected in particular regions. Consequently, it is essential...

Climate change is nowadays considered as one of the greatest problems humanity is facing due to the magnitude of its impact on economy, society and ecology. Southern South America, and in particular La Plata Basin, are areas where climate change is detected with major intensity. The principal objective of this study is to evaluate the ability of GC...

The dynamical basis for seasonal-to-decadal climate predictions and predictability over South America is reviewed. It is shown that while global tropical SST affect both predictability and predictions over South America, the lack of SST predictability over the Atlantic represents a limiting factor to seasonal climate predictions over some parts of...

Most of the Plata River discharge (about 26,000 m 3 s-1) originates in the north of the basin, namely over Brazil and Paraguay where the runoff accounts for only 30 % of the mean precipitation volume. Therefore, the percentage changes in discharges generally magnify the corresponding changes in either precipitation or evaporation. In fact, in the l...

Significant climate change effects on river discharges of the Plata basin cannot be discounted, as the regional precipitation has already had a substantial positive trend in the past. Besides, rivers discharges, when expressed as percentages, considerably amplify the precipitation variability. Trends during the last 40 years were principally caused...

Seasonal linear trends of precipitation from South American station data, which have been averaged onto grids, are examined, with emphasis on the central continent. In the period 1976 99, the largest trend south of 20°S occurs during the January March season, is positive, and is centered over southern Brazil. From 1948 to 1975 the trend is also pos...

The most severe flooding of the twentieth century in the Argentine section of the Paraná River occurred during the strong El Niño (EN) event of 1983. During the 1997-98 EN episode, discharge anomalies in the Paraná basin, although of the same sign as those of the 1982-83 event, were much smaller. The main differences were observed during January-Ma...

In subtropical Argentina, Paraguay and southern Brazil, precipitation is most abundant during summer but its interannual variability is large. At this time a zone of low-level convergence, upper-level divergence, and intense convection is developed to the north of this area. This feature is known as the South Atlantic convergence zone (SACZ) and se...

For U.S., Argentine and Australian cities, yearly mean urban to rural temperature differences (Tu-r) and rural temperatures (Tr) are negatively correlated in almost every case, suggesting that urban heat island intensity depends, among other parameters on the temperature itself. This negative correlation is related to the fact that interannual vari...

In spite of the severe limitations of the available data, use of the model permits Buenos Aires' urban-rural temperature differences since 1929 to be calculated. During the 1940s and 1950s the urban-rural temperature difference increased linearly, later slowing and reaching a maximum during the 1960s. The decrease in the urban-rural-temperature dif...

Thermal humidity and airflow fields over the metropolitan area of Buenos Aires city (Argentina), for the period June 9–13, 1978, at 08:00, 14:00 and 20:00 AST have been analysed. This period was selected because of its little cloudiness (<3/8) and light winds (velocity < 4 ms−1) at one of the meteorological stations. The observations were provided...

The annual pattern of the sea level pressure (SLP) in the western border of the South Atlantic high between 25°S and 45°S has shifted southward since 1950. This trend was found, both in the NCEP reanalysis and in the South American coastal synoptic data. This annual shift was related to a change in the annual SLP cycle. To describe this annual cycl...
