DRY SEASON CIRCULATION TYPE CLASSIFICATION APPLIED TO PRECIPITATION AND TEMPERATURE IN THE PERUVIAN ANDES
We present the first systematic classification of circulation regimes that characterize the Tropical Andes during the dry season (May-August). We apply the hierarchical k-means clustering method toExpand
Cutoff low over the southeastern Pacific Ocean: a case study
Cutoff lows (COLs) are infrequent events in the tropics that can cause extreme rainfall, flash flooding and landslides in arid areas, such as western South America. In this study, the life cycle of aExpand
