Article
Full-text available
Dynamical climate models present an initialisation problem due to the poor availability of deep oceanic data, which is required for the model assimilation process. In this sense, teleconnection indices, defined from spatial and temporal patterns of climatic variables, are conceived as useful tools to complement them. In this work, the near‐term cli...
Article
Full-text available
The spatial dependence of meteorological variables is crucial for many impacts, e.g. droughts, floods, river flows, energy demand, and crop yield. There is thus a need to understand how well it is represented in downscaling products. Within the COST Action VALUE we have conducted a comprehensive analysis of spatial variability in the output of over...
Article
Full-text available
A two-step statistical downscaling method has been reviewed and adapted to simulate twenty-first-century climate projections for the Gulf of Fonseca (Central America, Pacific Coast) using Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) climate models. The downscaling methodology is adjusted after looking for good predictor fields for this area (where...

Supplement containing the detailed results from the simulations: expected relative seasonal changes in daily absolute precipitation (mm/day) and daily mean temperature (ºC) throughout the XXI century per meteorological station and each of the climate change studied scenarios, predicted daily mean air temperature; predicted daily mean streamflow, an...
Article
Full-text available
Climate changes affect aquatic ecosystems by altering temperatures and precipitation patterns, and the rear edges of the distributions of cold-water species are especially sensitive to these effects. The main goal of this study was to predict in detail how changes in air temperature and precipitation will affect streamflow, the thermal habitat of a...

El proyecto Riego-Asesor analiza las relaciones entre la variabilidad climática y las necesidades requeridas en la gestión hídrica agrícola para así diseñar una batería de buenas prácticas de riego en...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Streamflow and temperature regimes are well-known to influence on the availability of suitable physical habitat for instream biological communities. General Circulation Models (GCMs) have predicted significant changes in timing and geographic distribution of precipitation and atmospheric temperature for the ongoing century. However, differences in...
Article

This paper addresses the determination of the realized thermal niche and the effects of climate change on the range distribution of two brown trout populations inhabiting two streams in the Duero River basin (Iberian Peninsula) at the edge of the natural distribution area of this species. For reaching these goals, new methodological developments we...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This study is aimed at forecasting the changes in the suitability of brown trout habitat (Salmo trutta L.), caused by alterations in the stream temperature and the flow regime under climate change scenarios. The stream temperature and instantaneous flow in several streams in Central Spain were modelled from daily temperature and precipitation data....

Análisis de la vulnerabilidad al cambio climático de bosques de montaña en Latinoamérica: un punto de partida para su gestión adaptativa
Article
Full-text available
The Mediterranean coast of Spain often experiences intense rainfall, sometimes reaching remarkable amounts of more than 400 mm in one day. The aim of this work is to study possible changes of extreme precipitation in Spain for this century, simulated from several Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) climate models. Eighteen climate...
Conference Paper

Water temperature is a central issue in freshwater ecology because it influences on physical, chemical and biological processes and, therefore, on organisms that live all the time or part of this in water. Therefore, climate change might drive the availability of suitable habitat for many fish species including brown trout. This paper deals with th...

Article
The evaluation of the possible climate change influence on extreme precipitation is very interesting in the Mediterranean area due to the usual and characteristic high intensities of its rainfall pattern. This analysis is also very important in urban zones, especially those densely populated with complex sewer systems, generally vulnerable to torre...
Article
Full-text available
This study describes a two-step analogue statistical downscaling method for daily temperature and precipitation. The first step is an analogue approach: the “n” days most similar to the day to be downscaled are selected. In the second step, a multiple regression analysis using the “n” most analogous days is performed for temperature, whereas for pr...

Tenerife, the largest of the seven Canary Islands, has the highest elevation of Spain, the Teide volcano (3.718 m. – the third largest volcano in the world from its base). Its climate is hard influenced both for its tropical latitude and for its exposition to the Trade Winds (alisios), which blow from the northeast for almost the whole year. These...
Article
Heavy and sudden rainfalls regularly affect the Mediterranean area, so a great number of people and buildings are exposed to the risk of rain-generated floods. Climate change is expected to modify this risk and, in the case that extreme rainfalls increase in frequencies and intensity, this could result in important damages, particularly in urban ar...

Project
The recently launched RESCCUE project (“Resilience to cope with Climate Change in Urban Areas – a multisectorial approach focusing on water”) aims to provide practical and innovative models and tools to end-users facing climate change challenges to build more resilient cities. The project will provide tools to assess urban resilience from a multisectorial approach, for current and future climate scenarios and including multiple hazards. This holistic approach to urban resilience will enable city managers and urban systems operators to decide the optimal investments to cope with future situations. RESCCUE is a 48-month duration project built around three research sites (Barcelona, Lisbon and Bristol) coordinated by Aquatec and co-funded by the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement no.700174.
