Europe - Future Danube River Segment Drought Event Set - Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

This is a dataset available for purchase under license. If you are interested in the wider dataset please contact us through the purple price on application button on this page.

The OASIS Future Danube River Segment Flood Event Set provides current and future drought risk for the entire Danube basin and over 13'000 river segments. Mean multi-day (7, 21, 63 days) discharge (m2s-1) for a range of recurrence intervals (e.g. 100, 500 or 10000-year minima) is included. The unique features are the adherence to both insurance industry and climate impact science standards: It is simulated by a continuous, distributed hydrological model driven by a state of the art stochastic weather generator over 10000-year synthetic climate periods under IPCC climate change scenarios (RCP-4.5, RCP-8.5 and 4 GCM-RCM model combinations). Historical flood intervals relate to the baseline period 1970-1999 and future periods are the medium (2020-2049) and long-term (2070-2099). Data columns provide future recurrence interval (years) as well as climate model uncertainty ranges of one standard deviation (years).
