In Spain, there will be more days of dry weather and climate
A group of scientists from the Polytechnic University of Cartagena have developed a method of forecasting dry periods, which can be used in any European country. To study the data were taken from 1980. In the experiment, it was found that the duration and the number of dry periods is growing. In early 2011, the water level in the rivers of Spain was approximately 77.83% of the usual amount. By the end of the year due to weak rainfall decreased to 62.01%. If the trend continues, by 2050 the Segura River Basin drought likely to increase by 15%, which will negatively affect the agricultural industry.
The purpose of this study is to deepen the knowledge about the phenomenon of drought, which will help to find the best means of adaptation and mitigation of natural disasters on human life. Developer Garcia Galliano, using regional climate models in combination with generalized supplementary models location, size and shape, considering the traditional frequency climatic analysis methods obsolete. A new approach to the study of drought into account the spatio-temporal risk and instability frequency characteristics of the phenomenon.
