Abstract The authors propose a new climatic drought index: the standardized precipitation evapotranspiration index (SPEI). The SPEI is based on precipitation and temperature data, and it has the advantage of combining multiscalar character with the capacity to include the effects of temperature variability on drought assessment. The procedure to calculate the index is detailed and involves a climatic water balance, the accumulation of deficit/surplus at different time scales, and adjustment to… 

Modification of the standardized precipitation evapotranspiration index for drought evaluation

Deficiencies of the standardized precipitation evapotranspiration index (SPEI) were identified. Using monthly precipitation, temperature and soil available water capacity datasets, we generated a new

Drought Characterisation Based on Water Surplus Variability Index

Drought assessment, characterisation and monitoring increasingly requires considering not only precipitation but also the other meteorological parameters such as an evapotranspiration. Thus, some new

A new standardized Palmer drought index for hydro‐meteorological use

Accepting the concept of standardization introduced by the standardized precipitation index, similar methodologies have been developed to construct some other standardized drought indices such as the
