Finding global hotspots of drought-to-flood events
Scientists warn of more drought-to-flood disasters in the future due to global climate change. While droughts and floods are currently studied and managed separately, the ERC-funded PerfectSTORM project will study drought-to-flood events to improve our understanding about the underlying interactions between hydrology and society. Specifically, qualitative storylines will be collected through narrative interviews and mental simulation workshops. Quantitative storylines will be developed from a time series of hydrological and social data that will be analysed and modelled. Researchers will also study global data sets to uncover global types and hotspots of drought-to-flood events. Additionally, socio-hydrological modelling will be used to develop a 3D future possibility space.
