Drought Assessment Using Standard Precipitation Index IJTSRD


Drought is one of the extreme climatic events among the most relevant natural disasters. This paper presents drought assessment using Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) to overview the respective drought hot spots. Monthly rainfall data during the previous 36 years (1982 ““ 2017) are applied to generate Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) with 3-month and 9-month scale on the basis of Gamma distribution for the areas in the central dry zone of Myanmar namely Mandalay, Nyaung-U, Myingyan, Natogyi, Meikhtila, Kyaukpadaung, Wundwin, Sagaing, Monywa, Shwebo, Myinmu, Magway, Minbu, Chauk and Pakokku. The generated SPI values for different time scale are classified to assess drought hot spots for the central dry zone, Myanmar as an areal extent of annual drought.
