Drought Bulletin for SE Europe

Drought bulletin for SE Europe was formed in the frame of DMCSEE project of the Transnational Cooperation Programme. More information on the project can be found in TCP project section above.

Drought bulletins are published on a monthly and seasonal basis, and contain the following sections:

  • Hot spot: short insight of possible circumstances triggering drought development in the given month.
  • Meteorological overview: information on air temperature, precipitation and surface water balance conditions over the past 2 months.
  • Vegetation response: time series of fraction of cover with green vegetation (FVC index) at 13 pilot locations across the region, and a monthly overview map.
  • Reported drought impacts, based on information available in electronic public media. To improve this information, you are most welcome to inform us of current drought impacts in your region - please send your contribution through our contact. Any other comments on the bulletin content are also highly appreciated.
  • Surface water balance outlook: short comment on the 60-day surface water balance situation as expected in the next 10 days.
