about

Applied Drought Modelling, Prediction, and Mitigationprovides a practical guide to new and recent methodologies for drought characterizations, change modeling, down-scaling, and future predictions.

The modeling procedures covered by the book include recent advancements in regional drought extent, coverage, intensity, and water deficit predictions, which are increasingly significant given current climate change impacts on water resources.

Each modeling procedure is explained theoretically prior to the mathematical derivation, and includes book examples, exercises, and case studies that supplement the applied and practical material, thus making the approaches accessible and applicable to the reader.



  • Presents new and recent methodologies for drought characterizations, change modeling, down-scaling, and future predictions
  • Includes online modeling tools to help readers quickly solve drought related problems
  • Presents methodologies, including drought features (duration, intensity, and magnitude) at any desired risk level
  • Include case studies from arid and semi-arid regions
