Water stress circa 2011 [Water Stress Index]

  • Title: Water stress circa 2011 [Water Stress Index]
  • Abstract:

    The data represents water stress in the Black Sea catchment circa 2011. Water stress is calculated according to the Water Stress Index (WSI) corresponding to the quotient of total withdrawals by surface water availability, both in m3 yr-1. The scale of this index is as follow: <0.1 = No stress; 0.1 to 0.2 = Low; 0.2 to 0.4 = Moderate; 0.4 to 0.8 = High; >0.8 = Very high. The methods used to compute the results are described in more details in [...]
