Water is Life

Water is central to life and determines our peaceful existence. However, extreme climate events including drought can impact the quality and quantity of water resources available for human activities. Throughout the world, water resource managers are confronted with water distribution decisions and management planning because of drought. With the ongoing global climate warming, the impact of this event on humans and their dependencies – water, agriculture, energy security, and economy – will exacerbate in the future.

Spatio-temporal characteristics of drought are strongly modulated by the large-scale atmospheric features. However, changes in the large-scale features and how they interact to induce drought events are not fully known. This is ongoing research among the climate community using both the observational data and the stat-of-the-art Earth system models.
