The Holocene | Markonis and Strnad  Self-organizing maps provide a powerful, non-linear technique of dimensionality reduction that can be used to identify clusters with similar attributes. Here, they were constructed from a 1000-year-long gridded palaeoclimatic dataset, namely the Old World Drought Atlas, to detect regions of homogeneous hydroclimatic variability across the European continent. A … Continue reading Representation of European hydroclimatic patterns with self-organizing maps
Earth, Mars and Titan are the only known planetary bodies of our solar system that have or had at some point of their past, flowing liquids. In our planet, water has maintained an active cycle since the early stages of its formation. On the other hand, Mars lost its water cycle billion years ago, if … Continue reading Synthetic and Comparative Hydrology of Earth, MArs and TitAn (SCHEMATA)
Recent European droughts are mostly evaluated within the context of hydroclimatic conditions of the second half of the 20th century. It is thus possible, that recent European drought events are less (or more) severe than previously thought. The XEROS project aims at (1) assessing the extremity of recent European drought events in the perspective of … Continue reading eXtreme EuRopean drOughtS: Multimodel synthesis of past, present and future events

The Earth system data lab is a new virtual lab developed by an ESA project to simultaneously access a wide array of Earth observations across space, time and variables. The principle idea is to explore the joint information of derived data streams as produced by several international scientific teams. Essentially, the ESDL consist of two … Continue reading ESA award to study drought in the Earth System Data Lab
