CR SPECIAL 33:

Drought in Central Europe – from drought response to preparedness
Editors: Donald Wilhite,Rudolf Brázdil, Ulf Büntgen, Michael Hayes, Miroslav Trnka

CR SPECIAL 33 highlights some of the main findings from the interdisciplinary drought re - search (InterSucho) project (sucho: Czech for drought). The aim of the InterSucho project was to understand drought as multifaceted extreme events at a regional scale with focus on the Czech Republic and Central Europe, and across various time scales. Some of the topics covered in this Special are:

  • Characteristics of historical and more recent drought events derived from documentary data
  • Observed drought trends, including observed trends in drought impacts
  • Response of agriculture to drought on seasonal and long-term scales
  • Expected changes and challenges arising with ongoing climate change
  • Methods to increase drought resilience starting from spatially explicit estimation of drought related hazards to drought planning
Contributions to this CR SPECIAL provide—for the first time—a comprehensive overview of drought and its impacts, as well as possible measures to increase resilience in the region, which is considered to be one of Europe’s climate change hot spots. InterSucho is lead and supported by Global Change Research Institute – CzechGlobe.
