The effects of increasing the surface reflectance by albedo modifications have been evaluated using an air quality modelling system. We have evaluated the influence over pollutant concentrations of increasing from 0.20 to 0.55 the roof surface albedo (scenario called Albedo1) and increasing from 0.15 to 0.30 the ground surface albedo and from 0.20...

The present study has generated and analyzed Climate Change projections in Nicaragua for the period 2010-2040. The obtained results are to be used for evaluating and planning more resilient transport infrastructures in the next decades. This study has focused its efforts to pay attention into the effect of Climate Change on precipitation and temper...

... The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model has been widely used in weather forecasts, with the results used as the input for different dispersion models (González et al., 2019;Wu et al., 2018;Yáñez-Morroni et al., 2018). In WRF, PBL processes can be parameterized through local or non-local closure schemes. ...
... Climate change has an impact on agriculture [81][82][83][84]. Due to its geographical location in the inter-tropical convergence zone, one sixth of Nicaragua's surface is in zones with high or very high sensitivity to climate events [85][86]. The Northern Caribbean coast is the highest risk area to climate events, with gradual decrease in risk towards the south [86]. ...
... It is worth noting that in sensitivity studies, there are uncertainties in determining the threshold of values to determine if the model is performing well. In this study, the recommended values in Table 3, as adopted from the studies [49][50][51][52], will be used as a reference. Table 3. Recommended values of statistical tests for the near surface variables adopted in this study. ...
