Quantitative expression on drought magnitude and disaster intensity

Feng, L. H.; Zhang, X. C.

According to the calculation of wind scale and earthquake magnitude, this paper puts forward the concept of drought magnitude and disaster intensity and lays out a new method by quantitative calculation. Drought magnitude is the quantitative index that describes the scale of a drought, and disaster intensity of drought is the quantitative index to describe the loss caused by a drought. Both indices have many theoretical and practical advantages with definable concepts and simple applications; therefore they are of important practical significance.
