Descriptif
It is the main objective of this Diplomarbeit to give an overview over different methods to derive streamflow drought characteristics and to evaluate the applicability of these methods for streams with different types of hydrological regimes. The methods are evaluated according to their : a) applicability for drought studies of perennial, intermittent and ephemeral streams, i.e. testing for which of the stream types a method gives meaningful and significant information ; b) general applicability, i.e. evaluating the results from point a), whether a method can be used to compare different types of streams ; c) data requirements and limitations. The evaluation is based on the information gained by applying the methods to a global data set representing different hydrological regimes as well as different climate zones. The data requirements and limitations can depend on the particular methodology as well as they can be introduced by data properties of a stream type.
