Impact of climate change on hydrological drought over a coastal river basin in vietnam
Author : VU, M.T.1, VO, N.D2, GOURBESVILLE, P.2, RAGHAVAN, V.S.1 AND LIONG, S-Y 1
Drought is a natural disaster and is defined as a ‘prolonged absence or marked deficiency of precipitation. Drought is often classified into three types: meteorological, hydrological drought and agricultural (Dai, 2011). Hydrological drought develops more slowly because it involves stored water that is reduced but not replenished. Lack of rainfall often triggers agricultural and hydrological droughts.
In this context, this study only focuses on the meteorological and hydrological drought for an estuary river basin in center of Vietnam by using the drought indices: Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) and Standardized Runoff Index (SRI).
