Exploring the Evolution of Drought Characteristics in Balochistan, Pakistan

In the wake of a rapidly changing climate, droughts have intensified, in both duration and severity, across the globe. The Germanwatch long-term Climate Risk Index ranks Pakistan among the top 10

Spatio-Temporal Variability of Drought in Pakistan Using Standardized Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index

Pakistan is among the top ten countries adversely affected by climate change. More specifically, there is concern that climate change may cause longer and severer spells of droughts. To quantify the



Characterization of drought and its assessment over Sindh, Pakistan during 1951–2010

Drought is one of the complex meteorological disasters affecting water resources, agriculture, livestock, and socioeconomic patterns of a region. Although drought prediction is difficult, it can be

An evaluation of the Standardized Precipitation Index, the China‐Z Index and the statistical Z‐Score

The Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) was developed to detect drought and wet periods at different time scales, an important characteristic that is not accomplished with typical drought indices.

South Asian summer monsoon precipitation variability: Coupled climate model simulations and projections under IPCC AR4

SummarySouth Asian summer monsoon precipitation and its variability are examined from the outputs of the coupled climate models assessed as part of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

Classification and Assessment of Aridity Over Pakistan Provinces (1960-2009)

Due to rapid growth of population, massive deforestation and anthropogenic activities, noticeable change in climate conditions is being observed in Pakistan. Increased aridity due to climate change

The Perfect Ocean for Drought

The 1998–2002 droughts spanning the United States, southern Europe, and Southwest Asia were linked through a common oceanic influence and climate models show that the climate signals forced separately by these regions acted synergistically, each contributing to widespread mid-latitude drying.

Regional Drought Assessment Based on the Reconnaissance Drought Index (RDI)

Regional drought assessment is conventionally based on drought indices for the identification of drought intensity, duration and areal extent. In this study, a new index, the Reconnaissance Drought

Comparative Analysis of China Surface Air Temperature Series for the Past 100 Years

Abstract Temperature change plays a crucial role in global change sciences. In the past several decades, comprehensive findings have been achieved on temperature change in China for the past 100

Climate change 2007: the physical science basis

This contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the most comprehensive scientific assessments of climate change during the past (the climate
