Climatic extremes - Scientific basics of the 2018/ 2019 droughts in Germany and Europe

The Poster is focusing on two recent and severe drought events taking place in Germany and Europe in the years 2018 and 2019. We provide definitions, explain measurements, calculations, development, and also the consequences of those large-scale weather events. We then compare the droughts of both years in detail and to the reference time period 1961-1990.
