Abstract

In deserts an increase or even a small change in temperature can set ideal conditions for drought; the prolonged conditions can lead to an agricultural drought from the metrological drought. We have applied SPSS and SPI to investigate Global climate model temperature variation as a drought driven element. Met-data of two meteorological stations was analyzed to reveal the condition. The obtained results show that temperature has risen from 1oC to2.5oCin20th century. The data also demonstrates a negative correlation between temperature and drought.
