Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the climatological precipitation deficit index (PD), one of the indices used in monitoring agricultural drought, using monthly climatic data from the period 1975-2014 in the Aegean region, Turkey. Temporal variations in the index were examined by Mann-Kendall trend analysis.
