Abstract

This paper illustrates the applicability of the de Martonne aridity index for the Napa Basin, California. It is concluded that use of the modified index makes possible a more detailed description of drought character, in close relation with the land cover/use situation, thus enlarging the range considered for the classical de martonne index categories. The final goal of this approach is to facilitate a more comprehensive consideration of diversification in water- and land-resource planning. In addition, the general water-budget equation included in the modified index could be extended successfully and adptated to different landscapes
