Ongoing global warming raises the hypothesis of an intensification of the hydrological cycle, extreme rainfall events becoming more frequent. However, the strong time–space variability of extreme rainfall makes it difficult to detect meaningful trends in the regime of their occurrence for recent years. Using an integrated regional approach, it is shown that over the last 10 years, the Sahelian rainfall regime is characterized by a lasting deficit of the number of rainy days, while at

The number of natural disasters worldwide has more than quadrupled since 1970 to around 400 a year. There are six times more hydrological events, such as those in Texas or South Asia, now than in 1980. Yet fewer people are dying, thanks to improved building strength, flood-prevention schemes and other measures. To reduce deaths still further, urban planners may have to plan for more such extreme events.

How dry was year 2015 and how much is year 2016 ? Several extreme droughts happened in 2015.  At CESBIO, we monitored several of these events by combining hydrological modelling and remotely sensed surface soil moisture from the SMOS satellite using the CATDS (Centre Aval de Traitement des données SMOS) products. From the implemented algorithm we make root zone soil moisture maps. Water scarcity in the root zone (0-1.5m) is a good indicator for an early warning system for agricultural…
