Caribbean precipitation : review, model and prospect

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The study of Caribbean climate pre-1990 focused almost exclusively on attempts to link spatial patterns in climatic variables to physical processes. Much of this research assumed a simple regional climate, warm year round with a wet season dominated by tropical cyclones. Recently, with the increased availability and quality of satellite and precipitation data, researchers have begun to use gridded data sets to identify the spatial boundaries of the bimodal precipitation region and the atmospheric processes associated with the two maxima and minimum in precipitation. Researchers must further examine the interannual to interdecadal variability of the Caribbean midsummer drought for prediction purposes
