Analysis of Hydrological Drought

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


This chapter, entitled Analysis of hydrological drought is the first part of a self author’s work. It deals with a comprehensive analysis of hydrological drought. This chapter is divided into several subchapters. The first deals with the analysis of hydrological drought in the rivers profiles in Slovakia. This chapter includes profiles that are distributed through the entire Slovakia and these profiles were assessed for determining the basic characteristics and regularities of the drought occurrences and their time course in the regional scale, especially as a reference source for local assessment of drought in the upper part of the Nitra river catchment.
