Satellite images show Europe facing droughts

Wed, 15 Jul 2020 14:32:00 +0200spacedaily (en)

Last months have been ones of the driest in the history of rainfall measurements in Europe. Recent storms, even the ones that caused local flooding, have not affected much deeper soil layers which continue to remain very dry. Large volumes of the heavy rainfall flow directly into rivers and drainage ditches and moisten only the surface layer.
