In this paper, we present the results of a climatic analysis based on 30-year (1971-2000) averages of precipitation and air temperature monthly data from 115 air temperature and precipitation stations of the National Meteorological Office and National Hydraulic Resources Institute of the Dominican Republic. The performed analysis provides a synthesis of the climate of the Dominican Republic, consistent with its orography and the atmospheric dynamics typical for the Caribbean region. According… 
Köppen-Geiger and Camargo climate classifications for the Midwest of Brasil
There is a wide variety of climates on the planet’s surface, and climate classifications are tools for delimiting and describing prevailing climate types. Köppen classification relates types of
Projected Hydroclimate Changes on Hispaniola Island through the 21st Century in CMIP6 Models
Climate change might increase the frequency and severity of longer-lasting drought in the Caribbean, including in Hispaniola Island. Nevertheless, the hydroclimate changes projected by the
Beyond the Mayan Lowlands: impacts of the Terminal Classic Drought in the Caribbean Antilles
Abstract High-resolution paleoclimate records from the Mayan Lowlands and the Cariaco Basin have shown that the collapse of the Mayan socio-political structure at the end of the Classic period ∼1000
Insights from a New High-Resolution Drought Atlas for the Caribbean Spanning 1950–2016
AbstractClimate change is expected to increase the severity and frequency of drought in the Caribbean. Understanding drought variability and its trends is therefore critical for improving resiliency
Lake Sediment-Based Reconstructions of Late-Holocene Lowland Environments of Dominican Republic and Barbuda, Northern Caribbean
Academic) Questions remain regarding the impacts of late-Holocene human activities and environmental change on landscapes of the Caribbean islands. This dissertation examined the long-term
Micro hydropower: an alternative for climate change mitigation, adaptation, and development of marginalized local communities in Hispaniola Island
In this essay, we explore the contribution of establishing off-grid community micro-hydropower systems in the Dominican Republic to climate change mitigation and adaptation. Forty-five
The Effects of the Trade Winds on the Distribution of Relative Humidity and the Diurnal Air Temperature Cycle on Oceanic Tropical Islands
On many oceanic tropical islands the trade winds blow from the east and as the air passes over the island it loses moisture to rain. The two hypotheses for this study are that the western part of the

Producing climate boundary maps using GIS interface model designed with Python
Climate and its effects need to be examined within a more planned and comprehensive framework to prevent the unfavorable impact of climate change. Thus, climate effects on the ecosystem can be
Apparent survival of a range-restricted montane forest bird species is influenced by weather throughout the annual cycle
To conserve small and fragmented populations, we need an understanding of their population dynamics. With a global population estimate of < 120,000, Bicknell’s Thrush (Catharus bicknelli) is

Climatic Control of Vegetation Distribution: The Role of the Water Balance
TLDR
Improvement in the ability of the water balance to distinguish between climates similar in mean annual energy and water supplies but different in the seasonal timing of the two will help to predict the effects of changing climate on the future distribution of vegetation types.
Climatology of the terrestrial seasonal water cycle
Calculations of the spatial and seasonal variations of the continental fields of snow-cover, soil moisture and evapotranspiration are presented and interpreted. The calculations were made with a
A More Rational Climatic Moisture Index
A climatic moisture index (Im) used extensively by C. W. Thornthwaite and others is examined, and a modified version of the index is proposed. Arbitrary limits [−100 ≤ Im≤ 100 (∞− 1)], combined with
