Abstract

Drought conditions are oft en characterized by various drought indices. In this paper diff erent types of indices (i.e. standardized precipitation anomaly index, Thornthwaite’s aridity index, and Ped’s drought index) are used to estimate the future changes in drought conditions in the Carpathian Basin. For this purpose 25 km horizontal resolution gridded outputs of several regional climate models are used from the project ENSEMBLES covering the period 1951–2100 and taking into account the A1B emissions scenario. The results suggest remarkable drying in the region, especially, in summer, which emphasize the importance of developing appropriate adaptation strategies addressing this issue.
