Flash droughts have been extensively studied in various regions, but tropical environments, especially the Caribbean, have been overlooked. This is significant because these areas typically experience frequent, almost daily rainfall, making them highly susceptible to sudden and severe drying.
Earth System Science and Modeling (ESSM)
Driven by the increasing demand for climate information on a longer timescale, CVP has supported modeling studies on the topic of Decadal Climate Variability and Predictability. The majority of these studies have already yielded results, and in the spring of 2023, CVP hosted a webinar series to highlight their latest findings.
