  1. Urban cold and Heat Island in the City of Bragança (Portugal). The thermal environment is an important aspect of the urban environment because it affects the quality of life of urban residents and the energy use in buildings. Urban Heat Island (UHI) and Urban Cold Island (UCI) are complementary effects that are the consequence of cities’ structures interference with the local climate. This article presents results from ¿ve years of urban climate monitoring (2. 2018.

  2. A contribution to climate change assessment of storm surges along the coast of Mozambique. About two-third of total population of Mozambique lives along the coast which is 2700 km long. Mozambique is affected by tropical cyclones which are formed in the Indian Ocean, most of them inducing storm surges along the coast. This study presents an analytical model to estimate sea level changes, particularly extreme events (storm surges) from atmospheric pressure and wind data. The meteorologic. 2014. Aramuge, Adérito C.

This work evaluates the performance of several global climate models (GCMs) as forcing of a regional ocean model con¿guration centered in the Iberian Basin. The study is divided in two parts. First, the output of nine GCMs is analyzed based on the ¿elds needed to force the ocean model (Regional Ocean Modelling System— ROMS).

The oceanic influence on winter precipitation in the Iberian Peninsula has been evidenced in numerous scientific papers. Large-scale forecasting models generally use variables such as Sea Surface Temperature (SST), soil moisture and ice cover, but they are not very accurate yet. Using observational data, this paper analyzes the influence of North Atlantic and Mediterranean SST on winter precipitat. 2014.

Understanding the importance and the implication of the climate changes on coastal areas may be one of the major issues for this and next centuries. Climate changes may, indeed, impact the nearshore marine ecosystem, as coastal areas are very sensitive to the strength and the variability of the meteorological forcings. The main purpose of this work is to study temperature and phytoplankton distrib. 2014. Lopes, José F.; Ferreira, Juan A.; Cardoso, Ana Cristina; Rocha, Alfredo C.. http://hdl.handle.net/10773/14337.

The performance of the Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) model in wind simulation was evaluated under different numerical and physical options for an area of Portugal, located in complex terrain and characterized by its significant wind energy resource. The grid nudging and integration time of the simulations were the tested numerical options. Since the goal is to simulate the near-surface wind,. 2012.
