Abstract:   (6105 Views)
The impact of meteorological and hydrological drought on groundwater resources in coastal deserts in the south of Iran was investigated during 1991-2011, using Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI), Standardized Runoff Index (SRI), and Groundwater Resources Index (GRI). The results indicated that wet and drought spells governed the area in the first and second decades, respectively, which was similarly reflected by the three indices; GRI had a good correlation with SPI and SRI in 48-month time scale. This correlation was simultaneously in the eastern and western coasts and with a 6 months delay in the central plains. The findings can help to provide reasonable managerial strategy in relation to water resources management in the coastal plains.
