Features

  • Examines the effects of climate change and variability on drought
  • Presents new drought-based modeling and data mining techniques such as Copula Function, decision support systems, remote sensing, crop insurance modeling, interaction between ocean oscillation and drought indices, and more
  • Discusses the environmental aspects of drought such as groundwater and soil contamination, river low-flow, urban water quality, and desertification
  • Addresses issues of water scarcity in arid zones, and how to mitigate them by improving by inter-basin transfer, water harvesting, water conservation techniques, water reuse, etc.
  • Compares drought management in climatically different regions, such as Australia, South Africa, and North and South America

Summary

This handbook includes over 100 chapters, written by experts from around the world. It examines drought and all of the issues relating to drought and water scarcity, including causes, impacts, modeling, capacity building, early-warning systems, management and policy, remote sensing, risk assessment, and more. It also explains how drought can affect different sectors in different ways, for example, rural and agricultural areas as compared to urban areas. It explains the environmental aspects of drought such as contamination, and also discusses how climate change affects drought conditions, and presents modeling for better understanding drought in uncertain and changing climates.
