The spatial coherence of European droughts

Summary of the spatial coherence of UK and European droughts project



Some of the most important UK droughts have also been significant droughts across much of Europe. Researchers from the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH), the Walker Institute and JBA Consulting have investigated potential relationships in the occurrence, development and extent of droughts in the UK and mainland Europe with a view to assessing whether UK drought forecasting can be improved.
