Abstract

Article begins with a review of the larger scale factors and local factors that influence the precipitation climatology of Costa Rica. Annual and seasonal rainfall records indicate substantial interannual variability, especially in association with the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO). ENSO can cause floods and droughts in different parts of the country in different seasons. AA. conclude by discussing explanatory mechanisms in rainfall regime in Costa Rica caused by ENSO warm events. - (SLD)
