Deficit and Excess Index: Assess Droughts and Rainfall excess

Frequency, distribution and intensity of rainfall is crucial for any activity linked to agricultural production. A proper assessment of rains helps producers and insurers to better manage risks associated to them. In order to allow ClimaVista Insurance user to daily estimate situations of rainfall deficit or excess, Ecoclimasol has developed both indices. They are based on satellite estimates of the last 30 days and observed rainfall historical values. These indices enable monitoring the condition of rainfall in the region of interest on a daily basis, unlike other weekly or monthly scale indeces.
